Rokia

Innervisions Festival 2018 presentsRokia TraoreRandolph Matthews official fan page“The most adventurous African artist around strikes gold.” – MOJORokia Traoré is one of the most important voices of Africa. Throughout the years she has developed her own style, which consists of guttural rap and radiant soprano, of velvet tones and also rough sounds.With a poignant and progressive musical language, her personal (as well as political lyrics) – written in English, French and in her mother tongue Bambara – are a boundless desire of experimenting, Rokia Traoré is a modern ambassadress of her continent.Joining Rokia is Randolph Matthews. Renowned by many as the best solo Jazz vocalist on the planet. Randolph Matthews performs solo accompanied only by his looped voice. Where his roots in Jazz, blues and folk music explore the thin line between the divine and secular. His compositions are musically piercing and attuned to the stories of life. Mixing lost love, melancholy and sophisticated technology for atmosphere.
