Vieux Farka Touré is breaking new ground for West African music with his innovative blend of Malian blues, praise song, funk, reggae, and rock. Backed by the hypnotic grooves of his trio, Touré lets loose with exceptional solos, earning him the moniker “Hendrix of the Sahara.”
With 11 critically acclaimed albums in his repertoire, Vieux Farka Touré has established himself as one of Africa’s most dazzling guitarists as well as one of its most exciting musicians.

Vieux Farka Touré – guitar and lead vocals
Mamadou Kone – drumset, calabash drum, backing vocals
Marshall Henry – bass

“The son of the late Malian guitarist Ali Farka Touré inherited his dad’s dazzlingly fluid phrasing but clearly also digs the fiery African blues rock of bands like Tinariwen. Here, he joins American peers for a crossover set that slays”—Rolling Stone.

“He combines the prowess of a global superstar with a down-to-earth charisma and this is a hot ticket with a down-home feel”—Metro, London.
