Comparisons like that are earned, and the son of legendary Malian guitar player Ali Farka Touré has paid his dues. With his third record, 2011’s The Secret, Vieux Farka Touré has moved well beyond an exploration of the connections between the haunting sounds of the West African desert and the history of American blues, by revealing himself to be a brilliant songwriter and arranger. Touré and his backing band will be joined by some very special guests in a powerful evening of music.  Fool's Gold is an L.A. collective that weaves together western pop aesthetics with African rhythms and melodies. The group started as a side project of two young local musicians, vocalist/ bassist Luke Top and lead guitarist Lewis Pesacov. They’ve made two incredible albums, and The New York Times recently testified, they always “get deep in the groove.” X-ALT-DESC:
