Pop star Titiyo's dream concerts in dream cities
Festival au Désert in Mali, with Tinariwen
I have to get back to Africa, and visiting this festival has been a dream of mine. In my dreams, I go there with my partner, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Vivienne Westwood.
Festivalen Skankaloss in Gagnef, Dalarna, with pop band Amason
They played the festival last summer, and afterwards everybody was talking about how great it was. I’d love to see it.
Bungenäs in Gotland, with singer/songwriter Daniel Norgren
I’ve seen him five times in the past year. The dream is to see him in the quarry, with just a few people in the audience.
Detroit with the Doors
Because I love the Doors. Not everything, but it would have been fantastic to see them around 1970.
New Orleans with no-wave group ESG
I want to get there and eat Cajun and listen to the greatest band in the world. That’s what they are!
Bahian Festival in Bahia, Brazil
I’d love to experience this carnival. One of these days I’ll learn to dance samba.
Reykjavik with singer/songwriter John Grant
I like Iceland, and Grant lives there. I hope to be able to work with him someday.
Freetown, Sierra Leone, with Mary J. Blige
I get goosebumps just thinking about this. That’s where my roots are but I haven’t been back since 1990. To see Mary there would be a dream come true.
