Rokia Traoré presents the "rock & Mandingue" musical colours of her upcoming album, as she is joined by legendary British guitarist and producer, John Parish in a truly unmissable evening of live music.

Rokia Traoré talks to Ben Eshmade from Mali, in this excerpt from our upcoming May podcast


'As I have listened and appreciated the epic of the Mande, embroidered with beautiful melodies, I also felt the desire to learn and interpret it my way from the Mandingue epic of griots.'  Rokia Traoré

'Traoré moves through songs, adventurously blending traditional West African music and western rock.' The Independent
