Delving deep into his roots, Vieux Farka Touré, son of legendary Malian guitar player
Ali Farka Touré, performs raw West African guitar music. He has emerged as the modern standard bearer of
the African blues tradition. His highly energized performances dazzle crowds with his distinct style as a
singer as well as guitarist, always paying homage to the past while looking to the future. Vieux will be accompanied by Tim Keiper (drums), Madou Sidibé (bass) and Moussa Diabate (ngoni/guitar)
