Vieux Farka Toure is the son of the legendary Ali Farka Toure. Born in Niafunke, Vieux started to play the guitar rather late. But when he decided to make music for a living things happened very fast. Vieux’ debut album from 2006 was followed by multiple tours and soon several more albums. Vieux plays some of his father’s songs but most of the songs are his own in the typical Niafunke style. Played on his father’s guitar.
