Vieux Farka Touré and support
Vieux Farka Touré is one of the world’s most respected guitarists and musicians. He returns with his live band to perform from his extraordinary back catalogue and his critically acclaimed new album, Les Racines.
Les Racines, translating as ‘the roots’, represents a deep reconnection with the traditional Songhai music of northern Mali. This is one of the northern West African musical traditions known in the West by the catch-all term ‘Desert Blues’.
