Is it my destiny to grow toward the unknown? Malian singer-songwriter Rokia Traoré, last seen in Peter Sellars’s Desdemona, poses this question on her acclaimed new album, Beautiful Africa. Singing in Bambara, French, and English, Traoré brings to life her beloved homeland in the midst of political uncertainty, celebrating the strength of the human spirit and a hope that prevails.
“It really doesn’t get better than this in today’s African music.” —Songlines
