Vieux Farka Touré returns to the UK to tour, for the first time, his traditional acoustic quartet. He’ll bring his own compositions to the stage as well as his father’s well loved classics.

Vieux Farka Touré has firmly cemented his name and star power alongside his esteemed father Ali Farka Touré, both in songwriting and masterful guitarwork: oscillating artfully between Malian Folk, with the unique instrumentation and style of Songhai’s deep musical tradition, and the Deert Blues: which first made the Farka Touré name legend.

With six solo albums, including the critically acclaimed Mon Pays, Farka Touré’s recent dual-release of Ali – a collaboration with Khraungbin, and Les Racines – a mature, traditionalist’s record said to be “outstanding” by The Guardian – have propelled him to fame.
