Bandshell

Salif Keita + Courtnee Roze

Saturday, July 13 , 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm, 2019

Salif Keita and Courtnee Roze will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented by BRIC in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.

Last year’s outstanding Un Autre Blanc reaffirmed Salif Keita as “the most adventurous, gloriously soulful male singer-songwriter in Africa” (Guardian UK). Known as “the Golden Voice of Africa,” Keita was ostracized as a child for his albinism and rejected by his family for pursuing music. He found early success as a member of two iconic bands, the Rail Band and Les Ambassadeurs, before moving to Paris and launching a high-profile solo career in the mid-'80s. Now celebrating his 70th year on the planet, he returns to Brooklyn for his first time back at the Bandshell in more than a decade as a living legend of world music.

The djembe and conga virtuoso Courtnee Roze is a bandleader, producer, lyricist, writer, and percussionist whose catalogue of collaborators includes Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, Cirque du Soleil, J. Cole, and Lachanze. She has performed on storied stages both grand and intimate—from Carnegie Hall and the Apollo Theater to Joe's Pub and National Sawdust—and won the Afropunk’s 2017 Brooklyn Battle of the Bands.
