VIEUX FARKA TOURE
Often referred to as The Hendrix of the Sahara, Vieux is the son of legendary Malian guitarist Ali Farka Toure. Ali came from a tribe of soldiers, historically, and defied his parents to become a musician. History repeated when Vieux declared that he also wanted to be a musician – and with help from family friend, the kora maestro Toumani Diabate, Vieux eventually convinced his father to give him his blessing shortly before Ali passed.
