Bandshell

Celebrate Brooklyn!: Vieux Farka Touré

Thursday, July 16 , 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm, 2015

Vieux Farka Touré performs at the Bandshell as part of Celebrate Brooklyn!, presented by BRIC in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website

The heir apparent to the African guitar throne, Vieux Farka Touré—son of the Malian six-string magician Ali Farka Touré—plays “…original guitar music of such fluidity, technique, rhythmic invention, and passion, that it is virtually unequaled.” (AllMusic) He shares the stage here with countrymen Tamikrest, whose fiery, trance-inducing desert blues make them the spiritual descendants of Tinariwen. DJ Dakar, from Harlem via the Pikine neighborhood in his city of birth, spins.

Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
