By: Thibaut Remy, Richard Sprenger, and Josh Strauss

In an exclusive live session at the Guardian, Malian singer-songwriter Rokia Traoré performs Ka Moun Kè, from her latest album, Beautiful Africa. She explains the genesis of the track, a love song, and how the subtle differences between Mandingo melodies and lyrics and her own Bambara style are unlikely to be picked up by those without much knowledge of Malian music. The title translates as ‘Darling, What Can I Do For You?’
