The son and torchbearer of West African musical icon Ali Farka Toure, Malian guitarist and singer Vieux Farka Toure has more than filled his father's shoes, concocting his own hybrid style that radiates with "joyful audacity" (The New York Times). With an exuberant guitar sound perched perfectly between the blistering, desert-bred twang of the West African kora and the electric distortion of Chicago blues, Toure's music is a study in seamless musical crossbreeding.
