Vieux Farka Touré

Vieux Farka Touré returns to the UK to make the UK debut of his traditional acoustic quartet. He'll bring his own compositions to the stage as well as his father's well loved classics.


Vieux Farka Touré has firmly cemented his name and star power alongside his esteemed father Ali Farka Touré, both in songwriting and masterful guitarwork: oscillating artfully between Malian Folk, with the unique instrumentation and style of Songhai's deep musical tradition, and the Desert Blues which first made the Farka Touré name legend.


With six solo albums, including the critically acclaimed Mon Pays, Farka Touré's recent dual-release of Ali,a collaboration with Khruangbin - and Les Racines, a mature, traditionalists record said to be outstanding by The Guardian has propelled him to fame.


25th May - Support by legendary Irish based Kurdish/Syrian singer and Bouzouki player, Mohammad Syfkhan:


Mohammad's own brand of ecstatic music takes elements from Middle Eastern and North African music to create an atmosphere of joy, love and happiness. Since arriving in Ireland, Mohammad has used the language of music to integrate into the local community by playing at private parties and concerts. He has been playing music since the 1980's, while living in the city of Raqqa, Syria  where he began working as a professional singer and started his own band, The Al-Rabie Band which played concerts, parties, weddings and festivals all over Syria. His debut album I Am Kurdish came out on Nyahh Records in February.


Under 18s to be accompanied by an adult (21+) on a 1:1 basis.
