Ali Farka Touré trekked the world, bringing his beloved Malian music to
the masses. Dubbed “the African John Lee Hooker,” one could hear strong
connections between the two; both employed a bluesy style of play with gritty
textures that elicit calm and fury in equal measure. While the influence of Black
blues music prevailed, Touré created a West African blend of 'desert blues' that
garnered Grammy awards and widespread reverence.

Though he transcended in 2006, Ali’s musical legacy lives on through his
son, Vieux aka “the Hendrix of the Sahara,” an accomplished guitarist and
champion of Malian music in his own right. On Ali, his collaborative album
with Khruangbin, Vieux pays homage to his father by recreating some of his
most resonant work, putting new twists on it while maintaining the original’s
integrity. The result is a rightful ode to a legend.
