Vieux Farka Touré really is a master of his magical ax. When plugged in, the Malian guitarist stirs up swirling Saharan dust storms of sound, flecked with shiny, metallic ribbons of raw sunlight. When he's unplugged, as he is for much of his new album, Mon Pays (My Country) , Touré summons forth a delicate and soft fluttering of dove wings on lovely chamber-music instrumentals such as "Peace," where his deft strumming alternately evokes a harpsichord and a harp. Touré's ability to segue from intensely blurry incantations to languid idylls led to some interesting collaborations with Israeli pianist Idan Raichel, but tonight this son of the late, great Ali Farka Touré focuses on Mon Pays, a plea for an end to the civil war that's currently tearing apart Mali.
