ABOUT VIEUX FARKA TOURE & JULIA EASTERLIN
When Vieux Farka Toure (Niafunke, Mali) and Julia Easterlin (Brooklyn, USA) met for the first time for an impromptu studio session as Vieux passed through New York in the summer of 2014, something divine happened, transcending what each was capable of on their own. Thus their collaboration was born and an entire album project entitled TOURISTES conceived; to examine their respective musical roots and passions together and transform what they find into something entirely new and unique. The album, due September 18, 2015, on Six Degrees Records., features eight original tunes, along with covers of Bob Dylan’s “Masters of War” and Fever Ray’s “I’m Not Done.” Both inspired performers on their own, together Vieux and Julia prove themselves kindred spirits in moments of pure beauty, joy, melancholy and magic. They create music equal parts modern and ancient, haunting and playful, subtle and visceral. They will be backed by Vieux’s road test banded that has steadily built an energetic and loyal fan base throughout North America and the world.
The Aliya Cycon Project Trio opens the show
Inspired by Arabic instruments, melodies, rhythms and people, ACP was formed by Aliya Cycon at Berklee College of Music with fellow Berklee students and denizens of Arabic culture. Cycon uses her highest reverence for the Arabic tradition to expose her own unique voice in her compositions and performance. Her compositions salute the Arabic tradition, as well as to step just outside of its mellifluous frontiers.
