Rokia Traore

Africa’s most adventurous songstress makes a long-awaited return to the Chan Centre. The daughter of a Malian diplomat from the Bambara ethnic group, she travelled widely as a young woman and was exposed to a variety of musical and cultural influences.

The impact of this unique upbringing is ever-present in her spirited, surprising music, which playfully integrates elements of blues, rock, and pop with traditional African instruments and sounds.

Her critically acclaimed 2013 album, Beautiful Africa, is a love song to her birthplace; acknowledging both its majestic splendor and anguished challenges.
