Vieux is coming back

Vieux Farka Touré’s summer concerts brought the Malian based guitar player around the world and back, playing some of the most high profile concerts and festivals on the entire planet in support of his recently released Live album, including the FIFA World Cup Kickoff Concert in Johhanasburg, SA. How does one follow up an amazing summer like that? By getting on a touring bill with legendary American blues icon Taj Majal and master kora player Toumani Diabaté.  The trio hit the road in October for dates in the Western U.S. Check the video below for a peek at some new material the band tried out in Brooklyn over the summer. Full tour dates are here.
