Just in time to celebrate the return of Malian monster guitarist Vieux Farka Touré to the Bay Area, we’re making available to you, a free download of ‘Diaraby Magni,’ featuring Yossi Fine. The song, which showcases Touré’s signature Sahara blues sound tinged with elements of rock, reggae, and funk, was released as part of the ‘Vieux Farka Touré Live‘ concert album (Six Degrees Records), in part recorded at San Francisco’s The Independent.

Now you have the chance to experience Touré — dubbed “The Hendrix of the Sahara” — when he returns to the Bay Area as part of the 28th San Francisco Jazz Festival‘s “Salute to Ali Farka Touré.” The concert also features legendary blues and roots musician Taj Mahal, and kora master Foday Musa Suso.
