Picking this Vieux Farka Touré track was pure conceptual continuity for us: we did an interview with the Malian singer/guitarist last year, and his western Saharan Soul & Blues had been remixed by our close collaborator Adrian Quesada and his Brownout combo… Adding some jam band psychedelia, heavy funk beats and a Jamaican dub spirit to the original, this remix was indeed the perfect fit for our 'Electric Afroland' compilation! When the 'Hendrix of Sahara' meets the 'Latin Funk king of Austin, Texas', it's pure 'Afrofunk International'!!

About Vieux Farka Touré :
With his recent collaborations and performance before a billion people - yes, you read that right - at the 2010 World Cup in Johannesburg, South Africa, Vieux Farka Touré is one of the most celebrated African guitarists in history. Read his full bio on www.vieuxfarkatoure.com?page_id=4
