Vieux Farka Touré crafts Malian blues in the rich Songhai tradition of his late father, famed guitarist Ali Farka Touré. Vieux draws on haunting Saharan blues and traditional Malian melodies and infuses them with his own global influences to create an irresistible Afropop sound all his own. 

“The son of the late Malian guitarist Ali Farka Touré inherited his dad’s dazzlingly fluid phrasing but clearly also digs the fiery African blues rock of bands like Tinariwen.”—Rolling Stone
