Rokia Koné will perform the first UK live performance of her debut album Bamanan at Celtic Connections 2023. The album is a collaboration with Irish-born, California-based rock producer Jacknife Lee.

Koné is known for her stop-you-in-your-tracks voice, as well as for being a core member of supergroup Les Amazones d'Afrique. While Jacknife Lee is a highly influential producer, who has worked with Taylor Swift, U2, R.E.M and Snow Patrol. Together Koné and Lee have reimagined the Malian sound in ground-breaking ways.

Also performing are Togo All Stars from West Africa with their blend of afrofunk and voodoo rhythms.
