Vieux Farka Toure

How do you get through a blizzard in Northeast Ohio? With some new music from a Mali guitarist - that's how. I just downloaded the self-titled debut album by Vieux Farka Toure, the son of the legendary Ali Farka Toure. You can go to his website to listen to a few tracks. I recommend "Courage" which, to me, sounds like a combination of an African version of Little Feat and Led Zeppelin at their most Moroccan.
