Malian singer-songwriter Fatoumata Diawara’s voice is absolutely captivating. It skips like a rock over water across different registers and has a sort of Sade quality. This year, she earned two nominations at the 2019 Grammys for Best World Music Album (for her Fenfo LP), and Best Dance Recording for “Ultimatum,” which featured English duo Disclosure. So obviously, Diawara has range. Coming out of France, Diawara’s music blends Wassoulou traditions of southern Mali with other musical influences and a dose of searing electric guitar. The result is a funky, folky, futuristic sound. All that being said, Diawara is truly an incredible artist, and her stop in Seattle is a big deal. Don’t miss it.
