Often referred to as “The Hendrix of the Sahara”, Vieux Farka Touré is coming to Grounds! The son of legendary Malian guitar player Ali Farka Touré will show off his guitar skills and give you a night to remember!!

Being the son of an already acclaimed guitar legend would put most people off of picking up the guitar. But Vieux Farka Touré thought otherwise. With a performance during the opening concert of the FIFA World cup in 2010 in his pocket, Touré released his first live album. His live shows are known for his dazzling guitar skills and thus leaving the crowds in awe of what they just experienced.



In 2022 Vieux released an album called les Racines ( The Roots). This album is a tribute to his father, Malian Blues and the Songhai culture of West-Africa. To honor his father, Vieux worked for many years on this album in search of this strumming blues sound that remind us of his father.
