      Daby Tour

      with Ro Godwynn
      "From the first time you hear it, prepare to hum along, tap your toes, and be mesmerised by Daby's infectious brand of global soul-tinged pop." - BBC"If the idea of an African Nick Drake or Cat Stevens appeals, then Daby Tour is your man." - The Times (UK)With his wide-ranging voice, virtuosic guitar work, and knack for songwriting, Daby is a force to be reckoned with. Songlines MagazineBorn in Mauritania, and raised in Senegal, Daby Tour lived for more than a quarter century in Paris before moving recently to Montreal. While his father and uncles formed the pioneering Afropop band Toure Kunda, Tour has always followed his own musical path, with influences ranging from African folk melodies and desert blues, to jazz, pop, reggae, funk and soul. Blessed with an open mind and an explorer's spirit, Tour's catchy songs are as likely to appeal to fans of African stars Habib Koit and Youssou N'Dour as they are to followers of Bob Marley, Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder.Tour has shared the stage and studio with everyone from pop superstar Peter Gabriel, Algerian singer-songwriter Souad Massi, Italian folk adventurer Enzo Avitabile, African-American bluesman Skip McDonald, French pop icon Maxime LeForestier and Israeli-African collaborative The Tour-Raichel Collective.Whether he appears solo or with his full four-piece band, Daby Tour never fails to astound audiences with his ethereal voice, masterful guitar work and catchy original songs. He illuminates the darkest of concert halls with his joyful performances and infectious love of music.Daby spent his childhood in Mauritania, a country in western Africa. As a boy in Mauritania he was an avid listener to the radio and was influenced by The Police, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson. He taught himself the basics of guitar and from an early age felt instinctively that his destiny was to become a musician.
