Afrobeat star Vieux Farka Touré's latest single is "All The Same", in which American jamband favorite Dave Matthews lends vocals to a haunting Touré melody.

PopMatters' David Maine recently said of Afrobeat luminary Vieux Farka Touré's latest album, The Secret from Six Degrees Records: "At this point, Vieux Farka Touré is very much his own man as a musician and recording artist, which is an astonishing thing to say about someone whose career has been so short and whose father was so dominant in the field. It is exciting to wonder where his creativity and talent will take him next. Judging from this release, it could be anywhere."

Not that he needs to because he's spectacular on his own, but Touré paired with a number of big name US musicians on the new album, including Derek Trucks on "Aigna", which you can sample from an earlier PopMatters premiere. His latest collaboration is the album's new single "All The Same", in which American jamband favorite Dave Matthews lends vocals to a haunting Touré melody. The scripted video of a lone boy lost in his imagination in a rustic forest was directed by Sam
