Fatoumata Diawara

Fatoumata Diawara draws elements of jazz and funk into an exquisitely contemporary folk sound – refracting the rocking rhythms and plaintive melodies of her ancestral Wassoulou tradition through an instinctive pop sensibility. Fatou’s warm voice and rhythmical guitar playing is centre stage following a set by 2017 Juno Award-winning group Okavango.
