Following two incredible sold out shows at Camden’s Jazz café, Fatoumata Diawara, one of Mali’s most exciting new stars, announces her first UK Autumn Tour! After a spellbinding performance at the recent War Child Show alongside Blur, Dry the River and Brit award nominee Ed Sheeran, she took the summer festival season by storm before returning to wow UK audiences with her fresh and exciting contemporary folk sound.

Drawing elements of Jazz and funk into an exquisitely sparse, intimate and unique sound, Diawara crafts heart-warming, wonderfully engaging songs which have captivated audiences since her days as a backing singer/dancer for the mighty Oumou Sangare. At the centre of these stunning performances is a warm, affecting voice singing songs from her debut album ‘Fatou’ released on World Circuit.

“…boundary-breaking stuff” Uncut


“…a rising new star from Mali. She has the most gorgeous voice, a fantastic sense of melody and her guitar playing fuses spare blues, folk and funk…..Go see her.”

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
