"A must for anyone seeking new musical adventures." ~Dee Dee Bridgewater
Fatoumata Diawara & Bassekou Kouyate visit Calgary for a special engagement that will take you away with sounds from the Sahara.
Be mesmerized by the music of Mali with this unique double-bill of rising stars from West Africa! At the heart of Diawara’s music is her warm voice and understated guitar that tell powerful stories of her own troubled life. Her performances are intelligent and embody rich Malian music traditions with a contemporary twist. Diawara has become an advocate for peace in her home country, assembling over 40 of Mali’s most renowned musicians to record "Mali-ko (Peace / La Paix)”.
