About Vieux Farka Touré

Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Vieux Farka Touré is the second son of legendary Malian guitarist Ali Farka Touré. While keeping true to his West African roots, Vieux's music also incorporates influences such as American blues, rock, jazz, pop, and Latin music. Following his self-titled 2007 debut, Vieux established his reputation as a world-class guitarist. He played at the FIFA World Cup opening ceremony in June 2010, the same month he released Live, a document of his powers as a performer. He has collaborated with numerous musicians spanning several genres, from Dave Matthews and John Scofield (on 2011's The Secret) to albums with Israeli pianist Idan Raichel (as the Touré-Raichel Collective) and American ukulelist Julia Easterlin. Soon after issuing the stripped-down 2022 solo effort Les Racines, Vieux released Ali, a collaboration with globe-trotting Texan trio Khruangbin, named in tribute to the guitarist's late father.
