Exploding onto the music scene six years ago in Burkina Faso, singer and guitarist Alif Naaba held his own in the music industry. Nicknamed the “barefoot prince”, Alif was introduced to music by his mother, a traditional singer herself.
Born and raised in Konkistenga, the singer comes from a large family from a village in Northwestern Burkina Faso At the age of six, instead of joining a conventional school, he learned the Koran. He was not able to go to a conventional school until a much later age.
The young singer has several recognitions including the Burkina Faso Music Trophy, Best Artist Award and Best Francophone song among others.
Alif is known for mixing traditional and modern sounds. This is especially visible on his second album entitled “Foo” which sold thousands of copies and topped the charts. He also wrote a memorable song for the 15th commemoration of the Rwandan genocide
With three albums already in his pocket, he is currently working on a fourth album and doing a tour at the same time.
This time around, this great talent is in Addis Ababa and will be giving us a concert on Wednesday May 26th at the Alliance Ethio-Francaise.
This week as we commemorate the 50th Anniversary of African unity, and celebrate the culture of this vibrant continent, this concert will be a nice addition and relevant as it will be celebrating African folk music. It is said all the best things in life are free and so is this concert. Don’t miss it.
