Vieux Farka Touré – US Tour Dates, Oct 2010

Vieux Farka Touré (

This is music from a contemporary Africa – urban, sophisticated, globally connected, but deeply proud of its ancient heritage. This is the old/new Africa that Vieux represents. Vieux’s is the music of an Africa that rocks, and yet still hears the camel’s tread in the sand. It is a unique combination of stunning guitar virtuosity and North Malian traditional roots that have prompted many critics and fans alike to dub Vieux “The Hendrix of the Sahara”.
