Savane is the final solo album by Malian musician Ali Farka Touré. It is the third and final part of the Hôtel Mandé Sessions, featuring Touré and Toumani Diabaté, recorded by World Circuit head Nick Gold. The album was released posthumously by World Circuit on 17 July 2006,[1] more than four months after Touré's death.

The recording sessions at Hôtel Mandé in Bamako took place from June to July 2004.[2] Touré, suffering from cancer, had wanted to remain in Mali, so a temporary studio was set up on the top floor of the hotel.[2] Touré approved the final master of Savane just weeks before his death in March 2006.[3] He said of the album: "I know this is my best album ever. It has the most power and is the most different."[4]

Savane features a number of non-African blues musicians, such as Little George Sueref, Pee Wee Ellis, and also Touré's protégé since the age of 13, Afel Bocoum.

It was released to high critical acclaim, earning a 94 on Metacritic.[5] The album was also included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.[6]

In 2009. It was awarded a gold certification from the Independent Music Companies Association which indicated sales of at least 100,000 copies throughout Europe. [7]
