Rokia Traore’s new album Beautiful Africa is produced by John Parish (PJ Harvey, Eels, Sparklehorse), and has received countless 5 star reviews. Rokia was the first artist announced for Glastonbury in 2013, and she was one of the highlights of the recent Africa Express tour, at which she performed alongside greats such as Damon Albarn, John Paul Jones and Sir Paul McCartney.
