Vieux Farka Touré remix contest launches today at ccMixter


Creative Commons, in conjunction with Modiba Productions and Global Beat Fusion are pleased to present the Vieux Farka Touré Remix Contest, taking place at ccMixter. Vieux Farka Touré — a highly talented guitarist, singer, songwriter, and percussionist from Mali — is offering the audio source files from the song “Ana” online under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial license, so that producers worldwide can use the sounds in remixes and new compositions.

The audio sources went online this morning. ccMixter will accept entries between February 7 and March 7. The winning remix will be included on Modiba Productions’ upcoming Vieux Remixed CD. Get remixing!
