Vieux Farka Touré New Album Release


Malian musician Vieux Farka Touré will release Mon Pays (Six Degrees Records) on May 28th, an album dedicated to his home country, which has been ravaged by fighting between the Tuareg people and Islamic rebels since January 2012. The nimble-fingered guitar player began planning the album before the fighting broke out, and in the time since, Touré has developed what was going to be a studio effort honoring the acoustic blues tradition of Mali into a record that pays homage to the beauty and culture of his country as a whole.
