“In live performances, Touré induces a trance-like effect on audiences” – The Quietus

The man often referred to as “The Hendrix of the Sahara” embarks on a solo tour in support of his latest critically acclaimed album Samba. Much like his late father Ali Farka Toure, Vieux has been at the forefront of African music for many years.

Son of Grammy award-winning Malian blues musician, Ali Farka Touré, he has also achieved the status of globally renowned guitarist and songwriter. He has been recording music for over ten years and is known for his intricate guitar riffs and traditional vocals. He mingles desert blues with Western Rock influences from the seventies and eighties and his latest release received plaudits across the board.
