Leading world music magazine Songlines' annual awards concert is formed of the very best in the myriad of musical talent across the world. This year the selection started from 600 albums and all four winners will come together in one special evening on the Barbican stage.
Following the sold out and critical success of the first Winners’ Concert last year, we are anticipating captivating performances from ‘Africa’s premiere diva’ (Time) – the winner of this year’s Best Artist award – Angelique Kidjo, Lo’Jo with their sublime mix of North African and French roots (Best Group), the mighty Dub Colossus Dub Band combining Ethio Jazz and Jamaican Dub (Cross-Cultural Collaboration) and scintillating Afro-fusion from Zimbabwe’s hottest young export Mokoomba (Newcomer).
