Tue. October 6th 2015 Rickshaw Theatre (No Minors)
Tickets at: Highlife Records, Red Cat Records,
Malian and American musicians' collaborative project comes to Vancouver for the first time.

The Rickshaw & Caravan World Rhythms present a unique new collaboration with West African guitar superstar Vieux Farka Touré and New York jazz singer Julia Easterlin.

When Vieux Farka Touré (Niafunke, Mali) and Julia Easterlin (Augusta, 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. 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.

Don't miss TOURISTES live at the Rickshaw Theatre on October 6th with special guests.
