Legendary Malian superstar, master singer, songwriter, and guitarist Boubacar (aka "Kar Kar") Traore rose to fame in the 60's with his desert blues performances, fusing Malian and Arabic music. Today, along with the late Ali Farka Toure, Boubacar is considered one of the most pivotal figures in the African desert blues tradition. This is a rare opportunity to see and experience this elusive genius live.
