Following two incredible sold out shows at Camden’s Jazz café, Fatoumata Diawara, one of Mali’s most exciting new stars, announces her first UK Autumn Tour!

 

After a spellbinding performance at the recent War Child Show alongside Blur, Dry the River and Brit award nominee Ed Sheeran, she is set to take the summer festival season by storm before returning wow UK audiences with her fresh and exciting contemporary folk sound. Drawing elements of jazz and funk into an exquisitely sparse, intimate and unique sound, Fatou crafts heart-warming, wonderfully engaging songs which have captivated audiences since her days as a backing singer/dancer for the mighty Oumou Sangare. At the centre of these stunning performances is a warm, affecting voice singing songs from her debut album ‘Fatou’ released on World Circuit.

Event Review: Fatoumata Diawara @ Jazz Cafe (London; 26th March 2018)

A one-off performance for a one-off event. It doesn’t happen too often that we get to enjoy a Fatoumata Diawara gig in London, but on the rare occasions when the Malian musician visits the British capital, her shows are always hard-to-forget experiences. That’s how it went on the 26th of…

Review: Songhoy Blues presents ‘Music in Exile’ @ Roundhouse (London, 21st May 2016)

Although the story behind how Aliou Touré, Garba Touré, Oumar Touré and Nathaneal Dembélé became Songhoy Blues is not all roses — they were forced to fled to the capital Bamako after northern Mali was occupied by jihadists — their music is everything but sorrowful. A sold-out Roundhouse could not…
