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.

At the centre of these stunning performances is a warm, affecting voice singing songs from her debut album ‘Fatou’ released on World Circuit.
