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.
Dream is an intimate and acoustic evening in music and traditional storytelling featuring kora, n’goni and voice, within the magical Famous Spiegeltent.
“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.
