Vieux Farka Touré

with Africa Unplugged


Time: 8:00PM

Admission: $18 advance/ $20 day of show | All Ages

Doors: 7:30PM

 

“With Samba, Vieux Farka Toure achieves unprecedented artistic depth and range — while he’s been praised for years for his high-energy, rocking performances, his free-spirited energy on-stage has finally been captured on a studio album. The styles on Samba are impressively diverse, covering dance-friendly desert rock, reggae and electric funk to haunting grooves, pulsing acoustic desert blues as well a touch of melancholic beauty.  Samba is to my ear a brilliant culmination of Vieux’s decade-long exploration of different sounds and styles, all masterfully strung together into a album that is at once varied and full of surprises, yet also a clear and cohesive expression of Vieux’s identity as one of Africa’s most vibrant and masterful modern artists.”

-Eric Herman, album co-producer.
