UNESCO Week of Sound 2020
For the opening night of the Semaine du Son (Week of Sound), Rokia Traoré and her band perform at the UNESCO auditorium in Paris. The concert revisits the classics and popular hits of Mandingo music with exceptional elegance.
Since her emergence on the international scene in 1997, the Malian singer and composer Rokia Traoré has been recognised as one of the finest voices on the African continent. Her music and career have been crafted on a strong attachment to the ancestral tradition of the Mandingo griots, as well as an aspiration for crossovers with jazz and blues.
