Vieux Farka Toure

Vieux Farka Touré is known mostly as the son of the late Ali Farka Touré, who is known mostly by those who are into Malian music and African desert blues. In other words, this show isn't exactly one that'll have all of Seattle pushing into Neumos--but maybe it should. Vieux Farka Touré takes the foundation of folk and blues that made his father a legend and slams into it with sizzling guitar solos, reckless jams, a few dub beats and pure, absolute rock and roll for a new generation.
