Via Mali: a very elegant and committed songstress!

We mainly situate Fatoumata Diawara in Mali, while she was apparently born in the Republic Côte d'Ivoire and is now equally at home in Europe. But the music of this singer, guitarist and actress has had its origins in the sounds of the Wassoulou area ever since her debut CD 'Fatou' on the excellent World Circuit label. Add to that the just recently released CD 'Fenfo' and you have a stage presence to look forward to on 5 May 2020… definitely after her Couleur Café in 2018, an exuberant full venue in Leuven in 2019, and appearances this year at premier league festivals like Montreux, Roskilde, Glastonbury and Le Guess Who! too.

For fans of Oumou Sangaré, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Tony Allen, Toumani Diabaté, John Paul Jones, Robert Fonseca, Flea of Damon Albarn, met wie ze telkens al samenwerkte... tot en met natuurlijk de film Timbuktu waarin ze de 'verboden' muzikante vertolkte.
In the press De Standaard: 'Moderne sound uit Mali - De Malinese actrice en zangeres Fatoumata Diawara (26) steekt zoveel tijd in collaboraties over artistieke grenzen heen, dat het zes jaar duurde voor ze haar tweede eigen cd uitbracht. Fenfo laat een meer moderne aanpak horen dan voorganger Fatou. Haar verblijf in Frankrijk en de invloed van producer Matthieu Chedid hebben een funky sound met erg beweeglijke baslijnen toegevoegd aan de zomerse, akoestische aanpak waarmee Diawara eerder indruk maakte.'
AB fun fact Made a first ravishing impression in April 2014.
Fun fact Has two extremely attractive feet.
