Vieux Farka Touré - "Aigna" (feat. Derek Trucks) MP3 (PopMatters Premiere)

One of Africa's most widely respected young musicians, Vieux Farka Touré releases his third album, which features collaborations with Derek Trucks, Dave Matthews, as well as Touré final collaboration with his father.

Vieux Farka Touré is one of Africa's most widely respected young musicians around the world. The son of the late Ali Farka Touré, the Malian guitarist and singer is about to release his third studio album, The Secret, on 24 May via Six Degrees Records. Soulive's Eric Krasno produced the record, which features collaborations with Derek Trucks, Dave Matthews, John Scofield, Ivan Neville, as well as most notably and Touré final collaboration with his father. Of The Secret, Touré says, "To make this album I had to dig deep into the secrets of my own history and my country's culture in order to move the music forward. My music is more mature now, more evolved. It digs deeper into the past and pushes harder into the future as a result." Today, we present the online premiere of "Aigna", which features the guitar licks of Derek Trucks. You can check out all the tunes come May 24th and at one of Touré's upcoming gigs (listed below).
