Rokia Traoré: Next Steps

Apple Music

Fiddling with harrowing blues or dynamic rock riffs, Traore unfailingly filters her music through her Malian heart. Deeply emotional vocally, the singer-songwriter and guitarist balances understated melodies and powerful renderings, fusing electric guitars with her favourite n'goni, the ancient lute, and vocals in her native Bambara or French. This playlist sees Traore at her most innovative.
