Day 6: Rokia Traore

Rokia really rocked the roof off the Dome tonight with her brilliant band but was also true to her roots with traditional songs. From this beautiful, lithe, wiry figure comes this HUGE voice who also danced for a solid two hours. From this beautiful, lithe, wiry figure comes this HUGE voice who also danced for a solid two hours. Got to say something about the band. The lead guitar was fiendishly good - at points the band got into heavy rock, Cream like sounds but he switched with ease from rock to African sounds. The drummer, did some magical things with percussion instruments, while at the same time, knocking out the rhythms. The bass player boomed away and the Xalam player knocked out some great solos. Whole place on its feet at the end.
