Apart from being extremely successful in her own right, she has worked with the likes of Bobby Womack and has also gained tremendous respect in the world of acting, appearing in the Oscar-nominated “Timbuktu” in 2014. Her first album, released last year and entitled “Fenfo”, was nominated for a Grammy Award. Fatoumata, who grew up on the Ivory Coast, will be singing for us in Bambara and her music will showcase the very best of traditional west African music combined with western pop, all with a futuristic spin. The result is timeless and the perfect recipe for an unforgettable evening.
We are absolutely delighted to welcome Fatoumata Diawara, one of West Africa´s greatest musicians, to Stavanger for the first time.
