Timbuktu's famous Desert Festival in Mali, is now touring in exile due to a political takeover.
Old Town School of Folk Music Chicago
Last night's sold out concert was made possible by the bonded relationships with the festival organized and Old Town School of Folk staff. Ali Farka Touré Band headlined with Terakaft opening the concert. Only one of a few performances in the states, this show was a rare opportunity for patrons to experience. This music harkens the origins of the American blues.
