Vieux Farka Touré

Thursday, April 12, 2018 - 7:30 PM

This show will have a dance floor!

Often called the Jimmy Hendrix of the Sahara, singer/guitarist Vieux Farka Touré is the son of Grammy-winning Malian musician, Ali Farka Touré, who has gained fame and acclaim of his own.

Though his father would rather have him become a soldier than a musician, Vieux took up percussion and then guitar.

His album, “Mon Pays” (French for “My Country”) refers to his native Mali, and serves as a reminder of its beauty and culture even in the midst of the ongoing territorial conflicts there.

"This is the devotional, earthy soul of Mali, channeled through a six-string electric guitar." (Dominic Valvona, Monolith Cocktail)
