Rokia Traore

Went to Oldham to see Rokia Traore, who the night before, in Edinburgh, had been presented with the BBC Radio 3 World Music Award (Africa). The venue - The Castle - was tiny, so it was a wonderful opportunity to see an acoustic set (including water calabash) in an intimate setting. A truly fantastic show - one of the best ever.

Later, in July, she appeared at WOMAD.
