Vieux Farka Touré is currently on tour in North America (Friday he played in Manhattan and last night he was in Toronto). He is the son of the late international superstar and two-time Grammy Award-winner Ali Farka Touré. Both Touré and the label that produces his music are working on social issues on the African continent with 10 percent of album proceeds going towards Bée Sago which is an organization that specializes in production and distribution of insectided-treated mosquito netting to children and pregnant mothers in Mali.
A representative of Touré's production company, Modiba Productions, had this to say about the competition:
"One of Modiba's central goals as an organization is collaboration, the expansion of boundaries to bring in new ideas and approaches through working together in an open and dynamic way. The Creative Commons project is a perfect example of this, and we look forward to bringing more talented and inspired minds to further explore the sounds of Vieux Farka Touré."If you are a Mixter, then get over there to ccMixter and do your thing. If you are like me, simply sit back and enjoy the show.
