Rokia Traore

I first heard Rokia Traore in my car listening to NPR.
She sang a rendition of "The Man I Love"...the old Billie Holiday/Peggy Lee standard. Her version sent a chill up my back and brought a tear to my eye. I hurried home and immediately downloaded the song from Itunes. Her voice is compelling..."slinky and breathy". In her current album "Tchamantche" she uses traditional African instruments along with acoustic and electric guitar, giving her sound a unique appeal.
