Fatoumata Diawara at Rough Trade - Oui Love - New French Music

Fatoumata Diawara at Rough Trade


To tie in with the release of her sophomore album Fenfo, on 25th May, Fatoumata Diawara will be performing an exclusive solo set at Rough Trade East on Wednesday 6th June, followed by a signing session.

Hailed by the likes of Pitchfork, The Guardian and Gilles Peterson, Diawara is seen as a new standard in modern African music. She shows a will to combine African heritage and modern sounds by associating the Bambara language with contemporary issues, and boldly conveys her messages throughout eleven carefully crafted songs.

‘Fenfo’ translates as “something to say” and on this album Diawara proves that she’s as eloquent as ever.
