Vieux Farka Touré Tours the U.S.

Malian singer, guitarist and son of the famed Ali Farka Touré is returning to the U.S. this summer in support of his excellent 2011album, The Secret. Unfortunately, the tour takes him to some odd places and he doesn't quite make it to the west coast. Nevertheless, if you find yourself within a 3-hour radius, this is a show you definitely don't want to miss.

If you haven't heard anything from the new album, you can check out "Aigna" featuring Derek Trucks on our June mixtape which is still available for download.
