***This performance is sold out, however tickets are still available for Rokia Traoré at Paradiso at Town Hall.***
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 Sing, Traoré straps on her vintage Gretsch guitar and joins a supergroup of UK and European musicians, together with emerging African artists, to collaborate on repertoire developed at the music institute she founded in Mali.
“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.
