This performance of Fatoumata Diawara is made possible, in part, by performance benefactor NOA Living.

Perpetuating Mali’s rich musical tradition, Fatoumata Diawara combines songs about love, politics and empowerment with arresting melodies soaring over intricate guitar and drum arrangements. Inspired by jazz and blues, Diawara has created her own unique contemporary folk sound, with a distinctly African spin.
