St Germain (Ludovic Navarre), whose much-anticipated self-titled album was released late last year, 15 years after his previous album, Tourist, kicks off his North American tour with a performance at Webster Hall in New York City this Saturday. The tour continues for the next three weeks with shows in Boston, Montreal, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, and more; KCRW calls him "a must see at this year's Coachella" festival. See below for the details, and visit nonesuch.com/on-tour for all of the latest.

For the St Germain live show, Navarre will be joined by revered Malian guitarist and n'goni player Guimba Kouyate (whom Brian Eno recently heralded as "the greatest guitar player I've heard for years and years"), Senegalese kora player Cheikh Lo Ouza Diallo, and Brazilian percussionist Jorge Bezerra, all of whom perform on the album, as well as Didier Davidas (keyboard), Sadio Kone (n'goni), Edouard Labor (saxophone & flute) and Sullyvan Rhino (bass), with Navarre himself at the center, acting as musical director.

St Germain's new album was "well worth the wait," says the Independent. The self-titled record marries percussive grooves, which have always been central to his sound, with a new element: traditional Malian music. "The result," says NPR: "a timeless African sound reconfigured ever so slightly for the electronic age." A "remarkable album," exclaims All About Jazz. "It is really a rare occurrence that an electronic music is crafted with so much style and substance." It "deftly balances tradition and modernity and begs repeated listening," says Jazzwise. St Germain "continues to revolutionize electronic music."

To pick up a copy of St Germain, head to iTunes or the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include a download of the complete album at checkout.
