Fatoumata Diawara is a Malian singer-songwriter and multiple Grammy Award nominee currently living in France.
She takes her artistry to fresh and thrilling heights on her new album FENFO. Boldly experimental yet respectful of her roots, it’s a record that defines her as the voice of young African womanhood – proud of her heritage but with a vision that looks confidently to the future and a message that is universal. She received two nominations at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards for Best World Music Album for her album and Best Dance Recording for Ultimatum featuring English band Disclosure.
“Fenfo expresses how I feel and how I want to sound,” Fatoumata says. “It’s a record that says who I am. I’ve had so many different musical adventures since the last album, touring and working with so many other musicians and I think you can hear how all of that feeds into this record,” she says. “This is my time and I’m sharing my soul.”
