Caravan World Rhythms & the Georgia Straight are proud to announce the return of Salif Keita , the legendary singer from Mali, Africa, to the Vogue Theatre, launching Caravan’s 15th season of presenting the best in World Music to Vancouver audiences.
The acoustic tour tells the story of Salif Keita’s award-winning career, picking up classics from his impressive repertoire. Known as the ‘golden voice of Africa’, Salif Keita has been at the forefront of modern Malian music since the 1970’s. Having spent the last decade exploring new musical styles and mixing his music with electronics, he returns to a more intimate and acoustic formula, a return to his roots, and offers a sensational retrospective on his entire career which demands utmost respect. Accompanied by four musicians (guitar, kora, n’goni and percussion) and two backing vocalists, Salif Keita plunges the audience into the heart of modern Mandinka soul.
For audience members, there will be room to dance on the main floor of the Vogue Theatre, or you can choose to sit down to enjoy the show.
