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.

The term "world beat" is trash, but ...

In the past few years I've really come to appreciate African blues. Musicians from places like Mali, Niger, Senegal, etc. really can put out some riffs that are complex and aggressive, but also pleasant and accessible. Vieux Farka Toure on his own can melt your brain, but it also blends in seemlessly with Khruangbin's psychadelia. Also as someone for whom songs can be ruined by bad lyrics, I love the fact that I don't understand any of what is said. It couls be the dumbest lyrics imaginable and I don't know it, and I don't care. I can just enjoy the sound.
