Fatoumata Diawara Playlist

“Africa Express was fantastic experience for me. I was able to play my own style of music with musicians from completely different genres of music, from hip hop, electronic and dance. It was incredible to have this experience live on stage and share the music with a different audience. An audience that wouldn’t usually listen to music from Africa.”
