Malian musician Vieux Farka Touré brings “desert blues” to the United States.
Son of late guitarist Ali Farka Touré, Vieux has been making music of his own since 2001, before releasing his first album in 2005. Since then, Touré has released four solo projects, a live album, and two albums in collaboration with Israeli artist Idan Raichel. Touré is currently working on another album, this time with New York artist Julia Easterlin, titled “Tourists”.
