Event Review: Fatoumata Diawara @ Chalk (Brighton; Wednesday 5th February 2020)

There are some performers that we have the pleasure of seeing on stage who bewitch, beguile and bewilder with their exuberance, their talent and their sheer ability to put on a show. Fatoumata Diawara is one such artist. Born in Ivory Coast to Malian parents and now living in France,…

Event Review: Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 @ Stanley Halls (London; Monday 4th May 2018)

Walking into the small, church-like Stanley Halls, one could hear the familiar stabbing-horn sounds of afrobeat emanating from the hall. The venue almost juxtaposed the performance on stage; as one entered, a musical, colourful spectacle erupted from the stage, held together with aged wooden beams and high ceilings. The sound…

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