Dubbed “the Hendrix of the Sahara”, Vieux Farka Toure is one of the hottest talents on the contemporary African music scene.
Son of the late maestro and two-time Grammy Award-winner Ali Farka Toure, his music heralds a new generation of Malian desert blues. A highly gifted guitarist, singer, songwriter and percussionist, Vieux has reinvented the fusion music his father created, bringing funk, reggae, and jam music to the desert-blues genre and carrying this new sound worldwide. Utterly astonishing live, Band on the Wall is delighted to bring one of Africa’s greatest stars back to Manchester.
