Their meeting was "planned a long time ago - we just didn't know it", says Skip McDonald, collaborator and musical soul mate to Mauritania-born, Daby Touré.

The planning may have been done on a higher plain, possibly by the musical gods, but the connection that the two men feel with each other through their music is real.

McDonald, a blues artist originally from Dayton, Ohio in the US, and Touré initially came across each other while working on separate projects at the Real World record company's studios.

The mutual interest and "spiritual vibrations" they felt in each other's music made for repeated jam sessions which eventually gave rise to the production of 'Call My Name', their six track album.

The two artists visited Bush House to perform a couple of tracks and chat with BBC Network Africa's Bola Mosuro.
