Africa Fête : Baaba Maal , Boukman Eksperyans, Femi Kuti et Oumou Sangare

Ambience will be at its peak during this African celebration, a small-scale Festival all by itself. Baaba Maal from Senegal dexterously conveys the rich musical tradition of his country with a blend of Western sonorities. Whether evoking southern Senegal with the kora or his native region of Fouta with the incessant rhythm of Yela chant, Maal simply lords it. The number one group in Haiti, Boukman Eksperyans returns to the Festival two years after inducing a general trance with their voodoo-inspired music. Embracing a tradition initiated by his father, Fela, Femi Kuti delivers his own version of Nigerian pop with strong African-American accents. Dubbed "the Madonna of Mali" by New York's Newsday, Oumou Sangare will grace us with the magnificent singing that has made her into one of the greatest artists on the contemporary worldbeat scene. All aboard!
