Fatoumata Diawara

Fatoumata Diawara, one of the most iconic voices in contemporary African music, has certainly won over a fair few fans on her world tour so far, with her enchanting voice, captivating stage presence and commitment to some crucial social issues stirring up widespread enthusiasm.

“One of the most inventive and dynamic performers in Africa. At her best, she mixes delicate solo work with high energy songs, dance routines, social comment and African-edged reworkings of classics.”– The Guardian

Originally from Mali, the renowned Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter has conquered hearts by breaking down cultural barriers with her transcendent melodies. Following the popular and critical success of her 2018 album, Fenfo (which means “Something to say” in Bambara), Diawara made a remarkable return in 2023 with her latest record, London Ko.

“A beguiling talent on vocals and guitar.” – The New York Times

Notably, London Ko contains a single entitled ‘Massa Den’, on which Diawara chose to collaborate with the talented French singer and guitarist -M-, and together, the pair created a track that deftly mixes together different musical styles and offers up an unforgettable listening experience.
