Guitar Voices fom Mali to South Africa

Fri. 2/15 10p: Vieux Farka Touré's self-titled debut album “both honors and extends the life work of his father, Ali Farka Toure," according to afropop.org Senior Editor, Banning Eyre.

We hear highlights from Vieux's New York City debut concert, an exclusive intimate live session, and an extended interview. Guitarist Shiyani Ngcobo, R.I.P., was a master of the maskanda tradition of the Zulu people of South Africa.

Fortunately we got a chance to talk with Shiyani about his long-awaited debut internationally released album and his story. He performs an informal acoustic session for Afropop Worldwide.
