      Vieux Farka Touré & Bombino: Sons of the Sahara

      Vieux Farka Touré’s father, Ali, was a legendary Malian guitarist who forbade his young son to follow in his footsteps because of the low pay and uncertainty of the music business. So Vieux taught himself guitar in secret — with some help from old recordings of his father’s concerts — and is now known throughout the world as “The Hendrix of the Sahara.” It’s proof that sometimes, a little teenage rebellion can really pay off.

      Cost: Sold Out
