***********************************************************************************************

Often referred to as "The Hendrix of the Sahara", Vieux Farka Touré was born in Niafunké, Mali. He is the son of legendary Malian guitar player Ali Farka Touré, who died in 2006. 

Vieux is also the director of The Ali Farka Touré Foundation, an international organization dedicated to the preservation of Ali's legacy and the cultural growth of Mali.

His live performances are highly energized and Vieux is known for dazzling crowds with his speed and dexterity on the guitar, as well as his palpable charisma and luminous smile, both of which captivate audiences.
