Revere and Toumani – ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’

Posted on February 20th, 2012 in Recent posts by .

Last November, Toumani Diabaté was joined by the indie-rock band Revere on his UK tour. It was a surprising mix, but in practise was a beautiful pairing of excellent musicians. One of the highlights of the Union Chapel show was Toumani and the band playing Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’.

In case you missed the beautiful performance, we happened to stumble across this video, which even without the power of a live performance, almost brought tears to my eyes. Truly beautiful music…

Stephen Ellis also performed with Vieux Farka Touré last week at the Queen Elizabeth Hall (below. Photo by Gemma Hall).
