Performance Notes

× This event takes place at Kay Meek Centre, 1700 Mathers Avenue, West Vancouver.

Fatoumata Diawara’s new album, Fenfo, focuses on the challenges of migration and family—challenges she experienced firsthand, fighting for her independence by leaving Mali to pursue a career as an actress and singer/songwriter. Now, hailed as “one of the most dynamic voices in Afropop” [Pop Matters], she uses her voice to tell stories about the challenges facing migrants. In perfect symmetry with her lyrics, her music blends a variety of international styles while staying true to African roots, mixing stinging guitar lines with traditional African strings including the kora and kamale ngoni, and traditional percussion.

Presented with the Kay Meek Arts Centre
