I mentioned to some of you that a very special performance would be occurring at the training center in advance of our swearing-in, and it was truly special! The musician who performed a private show for the July 2010 Peace Corps Mali stage was Vieux Farka Toure – one of the most well-known musicians that hails from Mali. His father, Al Farka Toure is another very well-known Malian musician – and its clear that the talent is hereditary. I was incredibly impressed by his performance and enjoyed the jazzy beats. You might notice on his Web site that one of his last gigs was the World Cup Concert!
