Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Rokia Traore is equally celebrated for her albums and live shows, which Time Out have said is 'arguably the most exciting, most thrilling live African music show around.'
She was the first artist to be announced for the 2013 Glastonbury festival, and she headlined WOMAD on July 27. Her new album Beautiful Africa was released, to rave reviews, in April on Nonesuch Records.
'Rokia Traore is indeed a remarkable artist, and it is difficult to think of anyone else who can switch from ancient Malian culture to acting and then to African rock and roll.' Robin Denselow, The Guardian
