The award-winning Malian singer Rokia Traoré is giving a concert with our artist in residence Smadj and some of their international musical friends. Drawing on mysterious wellsprings, Traoré has created her own musical language; her authentic and innovative music is resistant to all changes in fashion. The French oud-player (with Tunisian roots) Smadj combines jazz and electro with music from every corner of the world. The duo is joined for the occasion by the Malian kora-player Ballaké Sissoko, the South African rapper Mo Laudi, and the Turkish baglama-player Cem Yildiz. Together, they will present a subtle combination of the most beautiful sounds from the East and from South Africa.
