Support 88Nine And This Artist:
Boureima "Vieux" Farka Touré (born 1981) is a Malian singer and guitarist born in Niafunké, Mali - son of Malian musician Ali Farka Touré. Vieux has proven in his energetic live shows that he is the heir to Ali's talent while still distinguishing himself from his famous bluesman father, Malian legend Ali Farka Touré, and has transcended the limitations of the world music genre itself. For the 2010 FIFA World Cup in Johannesburg, South Africa, Vieux performed before a billion people, and has become one of the most celebrated African guitarists in history.
