Africa & Middle East Award Nominee
Vieux Farka Touré
Les Racines on World Circuit
Determined to step out of his father Ali’s long shadow, Vieux’s past albums have boldly ventured into fusion and cross-cultural collaboration. Having successfully established his own musical identity, on Les Racines he returned lovingly to the source with an album that paid tribute to his roots and found him embracing his role as Ali’s musical heir, while retaining his own powerful and compelling voice.
