Vieux Farka Touré’s fifth studio album, and first since 2017’s Samba, celebrates roots, community, and unity. The title of the album—Les Racines, which translates as “the roots”—provides a clue to its songs. Many are about family and community. Les Racines evokes a palpable desire for harmony through its luxuriant instrumentation and vocals. Vieux Farka Touré’s rich voice blends well with his stunning guitar work, producing tone poems that explore the depths of our humanity.
