Die Entstehung und der Erfolg von The Touré-Raichel Collective, der Band des israelischen Keyboarders und Songwriters Idan Raichel und des malischen Gitarristen Vieux Farka Touré -Ikonen im eigenen Land und im Ausland – führt einmal mehr die einzigartige Kraft der Musik vor Augen, geografische, ethnische, politische und religiöse Unterschiede zu überbrücken.

The follow-up to The Tel Aviv Session, one of the most critically acclaimed albums of recent memory, The Paris Session reunites Israeli pianist Idan Raichel and Malian guitarist Vieux Farka Touré in a cross-cultural masterpiece that defies expectations and easy categorization.
The formation and success of The Touré-Raichel Collective, the band led by Israeli keyboardist and songwriter Idan Raichel and Malian guitarist Vieux Farka Touréicons in their own countries and abroadis a reminder of the unique power of music to bridge geographic, ethnic, political and religious differences.
Although a collaboration between an Israeli Jew and a Malian Muslim has unavoidable political implications, what inspired Touré and Raichel to work together was not the potential to make a statement; they simply connected as artists and friends seeking to find musical common ground.
The Paris Session is the result of the same freeform approach that was used in the first album, this time around they decided to feature more songs with vocals, a wider range of instrumentation, and appearances by musician friends such as Senegalese artist Daby Touré on bass, Israeli trumpeter Niv Toar, Malian singer Seckouba Diabate and others. Touré and Raichel have honed their interplay over the course of multiple tours together, but the album possesses the same spontaneous, heartfelt magic as its predecessor.
