Though the great Malian guitarist, Ali Farka Touré passed in 2006, his son Vieux Farka Touré is carrying on the torch.
Much like Femi and his father Fela Anikupalo Kuti's relationship, Vieux Farka Touré has updated his father's passion into the 21st century. In fact, from now until March 7th, Creative Commons, Global Beat Fusion, and Modiba Proudctions are holding a remix competition.
Access the files for Vieux Farka Touré's song "Ana" here (you can listen to the album version on his myspace). Then upload your own remix to http://ccmixter.org.
May the best remix win!
