He is a singer-songwriter, and his first album recorded in Niger is titled “Issaktan.” His music speaks of peace, friendship, and always inspires a sense of travel. His melodies can be meditative at times, and at other times, they lean towards blues/rock. Some even nickname him the Jimmy Hendrix of the Sahara. It’s up to you to discover the musical universe of Boubé.

▷ LES TOCHESS | Cumbia (Colombia, Mexico, Cuba)


Less Toches is the musical collision of five explosive characters, an unexpected and refreshing big bang of cumbia on the island of Montreal. The eternal magic of the peasant troubadours of the South acquires here a poetic, passionate and amusing air: Less Toches takes its name from a Latin American bird, and a Colombian expression meaning “clumsy”. Humor and trance translate into a fresh and deep interpretation of the peasant and riverside spirit of cumbia and accordion music. Humor and trance translate into a fresh and deep interpretation of the peasant and riverside spirit of Colombian cumbia and accordion music.Their Colombian, Mexican, Cuban and Argentinian origins combine to revive the rhythms that marked their childhood through the folk tradition: Continental cumbia from Montreal!
