Musician Rokia Traoré has an African soul but a global outlook. Descended from ancient Malian nobility, she spent her childhood traveling the world with her diplomat father. This fundamental tension -- between local tradition and cosmopolitan perspective -- has transformed her music, making it both strange but somehow familiar. Blending traditional African rhythms and instruments with the blues on her Gretsch electric guitar, Traoré has created an entrancing new sound. A star of the 2013 Glastonbury Festival and a highlight of the recent Africa Express tour, she has performed alongside the likes of Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz), John Paul Jones (Led Zep) and Sir Paul McCartney. Now she comes to the Nourse Theatre for a concert of exquisite and adventurous songs.
