Vieux Farka Toure is part of the highly anticipated Still Black Still Proud tour (subtitle: The African Tribute To James Brown), put together by Pee Wee Ellis and Fred Wesley from James Brown’s unforgettable seventies ensembles. They’ll be at the Dakota in Minneapolis on August 25, and according to the Dakota website, the great Nigerian drummer Tony Allen will be part of the band, along with the amazing Senegalese singer Cheikh Lo.
