Fatoumata Diawara’s captivating stage presence and contemporary perspective make her one of Africa’s most vital international stars. A multiple Grammy nominee noted for the electric power of her music, her live performances “scream with energy” (NPR). Diawara harmonizes the Wassoulou traditions of Southern Mali with soul, R&B and funk to create a boldly experimental sound uniquely her own. 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.
