A limited number of virtual tickets are now available to experience the magic of Vieux Farka Touré live from the Star Theater on May 12th.
No matter where in the world you live, FRQNCY makes it possible for friends and strangers to attend Vieux Farka Touré together and mingle in private and public video/text chat rooms, buy one of a kind collectable merch featuring the artwork of Gibrán Turón, and when you clap and cheer, Vieux Farka Touré will actually hear you just like you're in the Star Theater audience.
Often referred to as “The Hendrix of the Sahara”, Vieux Farka Touré was born in Niafunké, Mali in 1981. He is the son of the late legendary Malian guitar player Ali Farka Touré. Vieux is also the director of The Ali Farka Touré Foundation, an international organization dedicated to the preservation of Ali’s legacy and the cultural growth of Mali. His live performances are highly energized and Vieux is known for dazzling crowds with his speed and dexterity on the guitar, as well as his palpable charisma and luminous smile, both of which captivate audiences from all audiences in spite of any language barriers (though Vieux does speak 8 languages).
