In 1998, singer Rokia Traoré hit the international music scene with a unique blend of modern sounds and traditional roots. Since then, the Malian chanteuse and songwriter has gained a devoted worldwide following.

From a live performance at New York's Zankel Hall, Creators at Carnegie presents an hour of music from Traoré. Accompanied by spare African instruments and subtle harmonies, her voice is intimate and mesmerizing. By the end of the show, she has the entire audience dancing.
