Fatoumata Diawara - Fenfo

Hailed as one of the most vital standard-bearers of modern African music, Fatoumata Diawara is boldly experimental and yet respectful of her roots. A modern day storyteller, her songs cover such timeless subjects as respect, humility, love, migration, family and how to build a better world for our children.

Fatoumata Diawara released her brand new single ‘Nterini’ on 8th March. A poignant, melodic ode to a distant lover, ‘Nterini´(which translates as “my love/friend/confidant”) musically straddles the traditional and the modern.

Taken from her forthcoming album, the single was co-produced by Diawara and Matthieu Chedid (better known by his stage name –M-). Chedid, a superstar in his native France, recently won the ‘Best World Music Album’ award at the French Grammy Awards for his ‘Lamomali’ project, which also featured Fatoumata.
