Live Stream Salif Keita at Jazz À Vienne Free at 5 P.M. EDT

Salif Keita keeps threatening to retire, but he keeps getting pulled back in for one last big score—but then, if he keeps on performing, we’re the ones reaping the benefits and, safe to say, not complaining.

The 70-year-old “nightingale from Mali” is making a rare festival appearance as he opens up Jazz à Vienne in France today, and American fans can stream the whole show for free via Quincy Jones’s Qwest TV+ or “or on the Qwest TV Jazz & Beyond channel on Plex and VIZIO smart TV.

We’ve been big Salif Keita boosters over his 50 year career, and as of the last time we saw here in Brooklyn, his seasoned live performances are not to be missed. It's Friday, after all, so knock off early and check it out!
