The band recently played the legendary Festival of the Desert in Essakane, Mali, which happens to be the most remote music festival in the world.

Here's what I got in a press release:
Since forming in early 2005, the magnetic instrumental quintet has been credited with bridging the gap between West African and American music unlike any group before them, winning a diverse and devoted following and international acclaim from the New York Times, Global Rhythm, Relix, fRoots, NPR and more. Members of the group developed their unique sound over the course of numerous extended trips to Mali, Guinea, and Ivory Coast, where they immersed themselves in the local culture and studied and performed with luminaries such as Lamine Soumano, Vieux Kante, Madou Dembele and Koungbanan Conde.
Here's the band's official website and check out their myspace page.
