Celebrated as one of Africa’s most vital international stars, Fatoumata Diawara is taking her artistry to thrilling new heights. Boldly experimental, Diawara harmonizes Wassoulou traditions of Southern Mali with soul, R&B and funk to create a sound uniquely her own. Noted for her captivating voice, her live performances “scream with energy” (NPR). Her vivid and original songs cover such timeless subjects as love, respect, migration, family and how to build a better world.

One of the most inventive and dynamic performers in Africa.
