Vieux Farka Touré: Fundraiser for Gaza

Songlines Encounters 2024

Kings Place and Earth Cruises are proud to present the return of Malian singer & guitarist Vieux Farka Touré and his quartet, performing songs from his extensive catalogue as well as songs by his esteemed father, Ali Farka Touré.


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, traditionalist’s record said to be ‘outstanding’ by The Guardian – have propelled him to fame.

Proceeds from the concert will be donated to Medical Aid For Palestinians & the European Legal Support Center 

Date:Fri 17 May
Start time:7.30pm (Doors: 7pm)
Venue:Hall One
