New Album

Fatoumata Diawara projects her strong songs with effortless poise. The Telegraph

Fatoumata Diawara emerges after 5 years with a new album of original compositions, composed by her and and co-produced by Mathieu Chedid -M-.  In reflection Diawara says, “He brought the love to Mali´s music and culture and his own experiences, and I maintained my Malian and African blues tradition. Together we  found a modern sound fusing traditional and modern African sounds”.

In October Fatoumata Diawara travelled to Ethipoia and the Danakil Desert, with African photographer Aida Muluneh, for a photo session and video shoot  capturing the rawness and beauty of Africa. A location with an abundance of salt mines and volcanic activity.  This unique terrain captures stunning imagery.  A mesmerizing and futuristic setting for her highly expected new album.
