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. With his recent collaborations and performance before a billion people —yes, you read that right—at the 2010 World Cup in Johannesburg, South Africa, Vieux Farka Touré is one of the most celebrated African guitarists in history. Toure's latest album 'Samba', is already being hailed by critics as Vieux's finest, most well-rounded and mature album to date.
