Last week Friday, I covered a concert by Malian singer/songwriter Fatoumata Diawara at the Michael Schimmel Center here in NYC. She’s an incredible, and multifaceted performer. Although the focus in the press is usually on her singing, she’s a wonderful dancer and a stellar guitarist. Prior to being a musician, she was a very accomplished actress.
I wrote a piece about her show last week for This is Africa magazine. Click here to read it.
