Music from Mali

Dear Editor:

An alert to all lovers of African music, especially Malian music: Belly Up is bringing Vieux Farka Toure, the new guitar sensation and son of the outstanding legend from Mali, Aly Farka Toure.

If you missed Vieux at the Wheeler last November now is your chance to hear him; if you heard him you will have your own motivation to go see him again. He is coming to Aspen on Sept. 18.

If you are not convinced that Vieux is a must-see, I suggest you go to YouTube, type in his name and bring up the performance called Ai Du. See you at Belly Up.
