Habib Koité, Vusi Mahlasela & Dobet Gnahoré

The Acoustic Africa tour brings together three of the African continent’s most gifted singer-songwriters: Habib Koité from Mali, Vusi Mahlasela from South Africa and Dobet Gnahoré from Ivory Coast. Every so often, an event reminds us why we are so moved by song: the melody, the rhythm, and the message. The performers on this tour are also social activists, building awareness of the current conditions in Africa that affect the region and the world. They sing of love and faith, pain and oppression, and their ability to unite people.
