Often referred to as «The Hendrix of the Sahara,» Vieux Farka Touré was born in Niafunké, Mali, in 1981. He is the son of legendary Malian guitar player Ali Farka Touré, who died in 2006.

Vieux's live performances are highly energized and he is known for dazzling crowds with his speed and dexterity on the guitar, as well as his palpable charisma and luminous smile, both of which captivate audiences from all audiences in spite of any language barriers (though Vieux does speak 8 languages).

In 2017, Vieux released his latest album Samba, recorded live in front of a small audience at Applehead Studio in Woodstock, NY. The album is already being hailed by critics as Vieux's finest, most well-rounded and mature album to date. With each new project, Vieux expands his horizons, embraces new challenges and further entrenches his reputation as one of the world's most talented and innovative musicians.

This concert is being held in conjunction with the museum exhibit «Making Africa: A Continent of Contemporary Design».
