Vieux Farka Touré is the son of the late Malian guitarist Ali Farka Touré. While his father had hoped he would steer away from the music business as a harsh place to work, Vieux found a mentor in Toumani Diabate. His guitar skills eventually convinced the elder Toure that a second generation musician was inevitable. Today’s Top Tune is "Fafa."
