Vieux Farka Toure: Would You Have Played Sun City?


JVP Bay Area members at the SF Jazz Center

Several members of our chapter were at the SF Jazz Center Sunday night, Aug 16, with signs and flyers to ask Malian musician Vieux Farka Toure to cancel his performance at the Red Sea Jazz Concert on Aug 25 in Eilat, Israel. As part of the Palestinian BDS call, international artists are being urged not to perform in Israel.   We were glad to have been there and had some very positive conversations with people coming to attend the concert.

This is the flyer we handed out, and it includes the email address of Toure's manager. Please write him an email!

Also, check out this report from Stuttgart Germany about their experience meeting him at the concert there.
