Rokia Traoré

Rokia Traoré is one of the most important voices of Africa.
Throughout the years she has developed her own style which consists of guttural rap and of radiant soprano, of velvet tones and also rough sounds.
With a poignant and progressive musical language, her personal and as well as political lyrics - written in English, French and in her mother tounge Bambara –and a boundless desire of experimenting, Rokia Traoré is a modern ambassadress of her continent.
