“A spell-weaving new voice.” —Mojo

Malian singer-songwriter Fatoumata Diawara (aka Fatou) is “the most beguiling talent to hit the world music scene in some time” (Daily Telegraph). Accompanied by a smoking live band, Fatou spins high-energy jazz and funk into joyous and sensual folk-rock, inflected with the rhythms and melodies of her native Wassoulou. Her radiant voice and infectious Afro-pop mix the expansive and the understated. An unforgettable live performer who brings the music to fever pitch before exploding into the Malian didadi dance, Fatou sings of love, politics, and empowerment with “effortless melodic charm” (Financial Times).

Presented in association with the Office of the Vice President for Human Resources, Diversity and Multicultural Affairs through the UVM President's Initiative for Diversity.
