#MyDiscoveryPlaylist Fatoumata Diawara – Mali

Fatoumata Diawara

I don’t have a cool story about how I came across Fatou’s music. I was listening to Sona Jobarteh on Youtube and somehow ended up finding her. Maybe that’s cool enough. Born in 1982 in Ivory Coast, she is a Malian singer-songwriter and multiple Grammy Award nominee currently living in France [Wikipedia Bio].


Where Fatou rocks for me:

  • As background music when I entertain guests
  • When I’m cooking (Add a glass of wine and it’s a party)


About #MyDiscoveryPlaylist
I have challenged myself to discover new music from around Africa and the world and listen to more of it. I will share as much of it as I can here and online using the hashtag #MyDiscoveryPlaylist.
