Vieux Farka Touré
Vieux Farka Touré is the son of the late international superstar and two-time GRAMMY© Award-winner Ali Farka Touré. An historic passing of the torch from father to son is represented by Vieux’s debut. He has crafted a globalminded style all his own with original compositions displaying flourishes of rock and reggae amidst Saharan Blues and traditional Malian melodies. Vieux Farka Touré is ushering in the next generation of Mali blues on his self-titled debut album which features Ali himself on two remarkable pieces. These tracks are the only existing recordings of father and son playing together, and are amongst the final recorded material of Ali before his death.
