Touki was formed in Vienna by musicians from five countries and four continents and is dedicated to an exotic combination of jazz and West African sounds. This delicate brew has also been spiced with musical elements from Brazil, the Balkans and the Orient.

Most of the pieces have been composed by Senegalese bassist Cheikh Ndao. Touki’s wonderfully exotic fusion soothes listeners with sophisticated harmonies and ethnic influences from all directions. Laid-back vibes at their finest.

line up:
Cheikh Ndao (SEN) – bass, vocals
Shahyar Golnar (IR) – vocals
Alexander Wladigeroff (BG) – trumpet, flugelhorn
Julia Siedl (AUT) – piano, keyboard
Luis Ribeiro (BRA) – percussion
