Over 18s venue only
With Ryan Francesconi & Mirabai Peart
Mali’s Rokia Traoré proves why she is one of the most adventurous singer/songwriters in Africa. The versatile Traoré presents three specially-curated events, Sing – Dance – Dream (Donguili – Donke – Damou), each performed in a different venue with a distinct repertoire and musical backing.
In Dance Traoré leads a stellar band in a potent celebration of African rock, blues and dance based around songs from her forthcoming John Parish-produced album.
“Traoré’s rich and mesmerizing voice, regal bearing and fluid movement has enchanted critics” New York Times
Commissioned by Barbican, London as part of the London Festival 2012.
