If Fatoumata Diawara first became known through her work as an actress, she has become – in a little over ten years – one of the most important voices of modern Africa. Through her collaborations, first of all, which draw the map of a world curious about traditions but determined to root them in the present and even the future. We have seen her alongside Mulatu Astatké, Oumou Sangaré, Hindi Zahra (in 2017 at Jazz à la Villette), Herbie Hancock, Matthieu Chédid or Damon Albarn, with his projects Gorillaz or Rocket Juice and the Moon. Above all, with her two albums, and notably her recent Fenfo in 2018, she combines with great fluidity the sounds of traditional instruments (kora, kamalé n’goni) with a modern approach to production, through songs interpreted in Bambara, which look towards the blues as well as funk or Afro-pop.
