Ali Ibrahim ?Farka? Tour? (October 31, 1939 ? March 7, 2006) was a Malian singer and guitarist, and one of the African continent's most internationally renowned musicians. His music is widely regarded as representing a point of intersection of traditional Malian music and its North American cousin, the blues. The belief that the latter is historically derived from the former is reflected in Martin Scorsese's often quoted characterization of Tour?'s tradition as constituting "the DNA of the blues". Tour? was ranked number 76 on Rolling Stone's list of ?The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time?.
