Afropop superstar Fatoumata Diawara has built a modern global career from her traditional West African roots. Village Voice music critic Robert Christgau calls her the “subtlest of desert divas.” Nominated in 2019 for two awards (Best World Music Album for Fenfo, and Best Dance Recording for her vocals) the Malian musician stands out in any crowd. Over the past decade Diawara has crisscrossed the world several times performing her music – a modern Afropop rooted in Wassoulou cultural traditions. Diawara’s remarkable album, Fenfo, extends her reach into both modern Afropop and traditional themes.
“…a classy affair that demonstrates her impressive musical range.” – The Guardian
