Dear music lovers,

Join me to discover or rediscover Fatoumata Diawara the Malian actress and singer-songwriter.

Born in the Ivory Coast to Malian parents, Fatoumata Diawara moved to France to pursue acting, appearing in Cheick Oumar Sissoko's Protected content film Genesis, Dani Kouyaté's popular Protected content Sia, le rêve du python, in the internationally renowned street theatre troupe Royal de Luxe, and played a leading role in the musical Kirikou et Karaba.

She later took up the guitar and began composing her own material, writing songs that blend Wassoulou traditions of southern Mali with international influences. Noted for her "sensuous voice," she has performed or recorded with Malian and international greats such as Cheick Tidiane Seck, Oumou Sangaré, AfroCubism, Dee Dee Bridgewater (on Red Earth: A Malian Journey), and the Orchestre Poly Rythmo de Cotonou.

Looking forward to seeing you !
