Vieux Farka Touré takes us to the sacred heart of rock ’n’ roll.
—The Arts Desk
Often referred to as “the Hendrix of the Sahara,” Vieux Farka Touré was born in Niafunké, Mali, in 1981. He is the son of legendary Malian guitar player Ali Farka Touré, who died in 2006.
Vieux Farka Touré was initially a drummer and calabash player at Mali’s Institut National des Arts, but he secretly began playing guitar in 2001. He is known for dazzling crowds with his speed and dexterity on the guitar and for his palpable charisma and luminous smile, both of which captivate audiences despite any language barriers (though he does speak eight languages). Touré has established himself as one of the world’s rare musical talents and guitar virtuosos, with a distinct style that always pays homage to the past while looking toward the future.
