Due to extensive and unavoidable visa processing delays imposed on him arbitrarily by the US authorities, the Vieux Farka Touré date scheduled on September 10th has been rescheduled to Saturday, May 14th. The Vieux Farka Touré team has never run into any issues with his US visa processing before and have exhausted all available options for recourse. All tickets will be honored for the new date, please contact our Box Office for any questions.

 

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.
