Fatoumata Diawara release Fenfo follow-up to her widely acclaimed debut Fatou. The album was coproduced by Diawara and Mattieu Chedid (better known by his stage name -M-). Hailed as one of the most vital standard-bearers of modern African music, Fatoumata takes her artistry to fresh and thrilling heights on her album Fenfo. It’s a record that defines her as the voice of young African womanhood – proud of her heritage but with a vision that looks confidently to the future making the Malian singer, songwriter, guitarist and acclaimed actress the most talked about new African artist of recent years. Fenfo is an album that has no borders. The modernity of stinging electric guitar lines combine with the ancient African strings of the kora and kamel ngoni and kit drums combine with the timeless rhythms of traditional percussion. The compositions of Fenfo cover the gamut of African styles, ancient and modern, from the slow-burning blues to the funk via the Afro-pop. Fatoumata has previously worked with biggest name’s of the contemporary music (Bobby Womack, Herbie Hancock, Damon Albarn’s, Snarky Puppy…); in the last two years she had played at the main Festivals and venues of Europe (Glastonbury, Montreaux Jazz Festival, Roskilde, Afrika Hertme Festival, Jazz a Vinenne, Olympia, Barbican, Oslo World Music Festival, Festival Cruilles, Colour Café, Rudolstadt Festival, La Mar de Musicas, Dromos Festival, Konserthuset Stockholm, Le Trianon, Muffathalle, Jazz Sous les Pommiers, and other major Festivals).
