This singer and guitarist from Mali combines ancient tradition and modern expression. The son of a musician who was venerated as the »Bluesman of Africa«, Vieux Farka Touré takes up the traditions of his homeland and fuses them with Afro-American influences, reggae, rock and funk. Like all great West African musicians, he is also a superb storyteller.
