The son of legendary Malian guitar player Ali Farka Touré, Vieux has made a lasting impression across the world on his own thanks to an artistic depth and range in his songwriting as well as his high energy and free spirited live performances. Having followed his father’s musical tradition on his first album, Vieux later branched out and presented his own sound: while remaining true to the roots of his father’s music he uses elements of rock, Latin music, and other African influences. In April 2017, Vieux released his latest album 'Samba', recorded live in front of a small audience. The album is already being hailed by critics as Vieux's finest, most well-rounded and mature album to date. With each new project, Vieux expands his horizons, embraces new challenges and further entrenches his reputation as one of the world’s most talented and innovative musicians.
