Bombino & Vieux Farka Touré: Sons of the Sahara

October 13, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$34

The Sons of the Sahara tour is a unique collaboration between two of Africa’s most esteemed and dynamic guitar masters. Vieux Farka Touré—often referred to as “The Hendrix of the Sahara”—is the son of legendary Malian guitar player Ali Farka Touré and joins us for his second ArtsCenter appearance. Bombino, the first artist from Niger to be nominated for a Grammy Award, is quickly becoming a global star with his sunny blend of Tuareg blues and reggae. Bombino and Vieux Farka Touré perform joint and separate sets, both electric and acoustic, transporting the audience on a dazzling and intimate musical journey to the Sahara Desert, the original birthplace of the blues.
