Modiba Productions Releases
Vieux Farka Touré Remixed: UFOs Over Bamako

"The son of the legendary African guitarist Ali Farka Touré, Vieux's remarkable debut mixes the traditional Mali blues of his father with more modern rock and reggae notes." - Rolling Stone

In August 2007, New York City based Modiba Productions will release Vieux Farka Touré Remixed: UFOs Over Bamako. A stalwart follow-up to his self-titled U.S. debut album (2/13/2007), Vieux Farka Touré collaborates with a select team of top producers presenting brilliant illustrations of his signature North African Sahara Desert blues. The family of remixers include Cheb i Sabbah, Karsh Kale, Nickodemus and several other ingenious contributors. Unlike the majority of remix records, Vieux Farka Touré Remixed: UFOs Over Bamako is a classic, fully realized album all on its own. An absolute standout contemporary interpretation of age-old Malian rhythms and melodies, Vieux Remixed is an eclectic mix of big-beat dance floor crushers, hip-hop infused funk tracks, trancey breaks and dubbed-out electronica.
