The self acclaimed “African Giant” will perform alongside Lido Pimienta, Poppy, Rufus Wainwright, and others.
Burnaboy is also one of the nominees in the Best Global Music Category, with Tuareg desert rock group Tinariwen, NYC afrobeat outfit Antibalas, Brazilian-American Bebel Gilberto, and British-Indian sitar player Anoushka Shankar.
The Best Global Music Category was previously known as international category of Best World Music Album, but was renamed in the 63rd annual ceremony to “make it more modern and inclusive.”
This is the singer’s second Grammy nomination. Recall that his previous album, African Giant, was nominated at the 62nd Grammy Awards for ‘Best World Music Album’, but he lost to Angélique Kidjo.
