Event 113

Baaba Maal

In concert

– Baillie Gifford Stage

Visionary singer, cultural ambassador and epic storyteller Baaba Maal performs his definitive tracks and music from his latest album, Being. Born in Senegal, and growing up inspired by indigenous African music, American R&B, soul, jazz, reggae and blues, Maal defied expectation to become a musician. Through the 1970s and 1980s he developed a distinctive sound that fused traditional African instruments with an adventurous electronic approach. He has collaborated with artists including Mumford & Sons, and helped Ludwig Goransson create the sound of Marvel’s Afrofuturistic Black Panther films.
