The 'golden voice of Africa' (fRoots), Salif Keita has been at the forefront of modern Malian music for many years.  Keita has extended musical frontiers and carved out a distinctive musical voice, in which rock, funk and jazz combine with the deepest West African griot traditions.

Seckou Keita, winner with Catrin Finch of 2013 fRoots Album of the Year, will open the evening with a special solo kora set. 

'The best thing about him was his voice.  A grainy and searing tenor, its power continues to drop jaws, and cause goosebumps' ★★★★ Evening Standard
