Africa Now! World–class line-up in London in October

September 29, 2008
London’s Barbican – probably the leading UK venue staging music for grown-ups, from across the spectrum – excels itself next month with AFRICA NOW, featuring giants of African music like Baaba Maal, Oumou Sangare, Amadou & Mariam, Rachid Taha and many more, on 23 October.

It‘s the first time I’ve been aware of so many of Africa’s greatest artists performing under one roof. They’ll do solo and ensemble sets.

Tickets: £10-25. Giveaway!
