Rokia Traoré + Concrete Knives @ Hotel de Ville, Paris , July 20 2013
Back at Hotel de Ville for this Free festival, We already saw Rokia Traoré @ UNESCO for the Evening of Solidarity with Mali in February where she was invited to perform with other Afrivcan artists , at the time she only played a couple of songs. We have a bit more tonight 25-30 min set.
Pop-Rock with African rhythms, nice. Better when she's singing in English than in French.
Then we have Concrete Knives, a french indie-pop band with, once again , African Rhythms, The kind of music to dance to.
Not really our stuff but very enjoyable and a singer very "French Chic" with the attitude of Jeunes Gens modernes.
