I saw Vieux Farka Touré in Philly last week- opening for the Dirty Projectors. (It was a great bill.) He and his band played Saturday night at the Highline Ballroom and Jon Pareles wrotes a great review in which he describes the sound of the Malian band. If you can, and are fans of roots music, African beats and “blues-rock leads by way of Jimi Hendrix,” definitely try and get some of this band.
