Rokia Traoré is one of the most important voices of Africa. Throughout the years she has developed her own style which consists of guttural rap and of radiant soprano, of velvet tones and also rough sounds. With a poignant and progressive musical language, her personal and as well as political lyrics - written in English, French and in her mother tounge Bambara - and a boundless desire of experimenting, Rokia Traoré is a modern ambassadress of her continent.
Her latest release Né So explores the idea of home - so showing the world is what Né So is all about, especially the title track, a stunning etching that depicts in a few strophes the distress of uprooted peoples. The album is filled with pain and joy, infused with challenges and hopes, and always nurtured with an uncompromising frame of mind: one of a woman who will neither give up nor overdramatize, whatever happens.
Her collaborators on Né So include not just a wealth of talented musicians from across western and central Africa, Europe and the U.S., but also guest performers John Paul Jones (of Led Zeppelin), Devendra Banhart and even author Toni Morrison, who appears in "Sé Dan." The album was produced by John Parish (PJ Harvey), who also collaborated with Traoré on 2013's superb Beautiful Africa.
