Vieux Farka Touré

When: Mon., Aug. 5 2013

The World Music Series has gone on hiatus this summer, but tonight's performance by Malian musician Vieux Farka Touré should serve as some consolation. Heir to the legacy of much-acclaimed guitarist Ali Farka Touré, Vieux embraces more rock influences, as evidenced by his 2010 album, Live. Combined with a vocal approach that's generally smoother than that of his late father, Vieux's music has even more potential to connect with Western audiences. Hear him tonight at the Fine Arts Center's SaGaJi Theatre (30 W. Dale St.,, Tickets are $25/public, $15/FAC and KRCC members; showtime is 7. — Bill Forman
