On the show this time, it’s the collaborative Mali meets world music of Vieux Farka Touré.
Vieux Farka Touré has released 7 studio albums since his debut in 2007. He’s shared stages with and collaborated with a slew of great musicians - from Amadou and Mariam to John Scofield and Dave Matthews. He’s played with slide virtuoso Derek Trucks and with Taj Mahal and Ry Cooder. He formed another band with Israeli singer Idan Raichel. He performed at the World Cup alongside Alicia Keys and Shakira. He’s clearly earned the right to be reviewed without mention of his father. But - he’s got the maturity to enjoy his connection to family and history. His latest album is named “Ali.” It’s another collaboration - this time with Texan psych-rock meets hip-hop trio Khruangbin - all covers of songs by his Dad. It’s available on Dead Oceans.
