Fatoumata Diawara

Fatoumata Diawara
Day
Wednesday 20 July
Mali
Polymorphous Afro-folk gem

In spite of her stunning charisma, her face is always serene, even in the middle of a guitar solo. Fatoumata Diawara is a quiet force, who was not predestined to be a singer. Starting her career as an actress, she would sing in the wings, without suspecting that one day she would fascinate audiences all over the world with her intimate and luminous Wassoulou folk. An accomplished musician, she is one of the most beautiful voices in modern Mali. With Fenfo, co-produced by Matthieu Chedid, she is also pursuing her third path as an activist. Fenfo is a reference to those who have “something to say”. She is undoubtedly their best ambassador. Someone who leaves you literally speechless.
