Often referred to as “The Hendrix of the Sahara”, Malian artist Vieux Farka Touré performs music with rock, Latin, and African influences. A musician all his life, it wasn’t until 2001 that he picked up the guitar and found that he was a natural. He is the son of another accomplished musician, Ali Farke Toure, and has performed on stages spanning the globe. Toure is also an activist and the founder of the charity Amahrec Sahel, which supports humanitarian reconstruction and the preservation of culture.
