[AFRICAN BLUES] As if he didn't feel enough pressure as the son of one of Africa's most legendary musicians, Vieux Farka Toure has had to deal with increasing competition in the past few years in the arena of Malian blues. His father, Ali Farka Toure, introduced the world to the trance-inducing guitars of the Sahara in the ’90s, and after he passed away in 2006, Vieux picked up the torch while also fusing the traditions of his homeland with dabs of modern funk and rock. But with the recent global successes of artists such as Tinariwen and Bombino, there is a race on for the title of Mali's leading cultural ambassador—a title Vieux once held almost by default given his lineage. With this year's gorgeously mesmeric Mon Pays, though, the 31-year-old proves he is still very much in the running for that particular designation.
