I totally loved it. She came across as more of a rock star (particularly with her guitar playing style and poses) than I had anticipated and it was not a detractor. Quite the contrary, I loved those moments. She engaged the audience well. Both sides benefited. Her band was doing a great job as well. I had hoped for some parts that would remind me of her collaboration with Roberto Fonseca, and I got some. I look forward to seeing her again!

Ich mag die Musik von Fatoumata Diawara, insbesondere die älteren melodischen Songs, die sie schon auf vielen Festivals präsentiert hat. Leider hat sie in Berlin überwiegend die neueren eher lauten und monoton anheizenden Stücke gespielt. Überzeugend wie immer waren ihre Tanzeinlagen und ihr Gesang. Enttäuschend war für mich, dass der Backgroundgesang vom Band kam und dass die Show schon nach 90 Minuten ohne Zugabe endete. Auch die Veranstalter konnten nicht überzeugen. Lange Schlangen an den wenigen Cateringständen und schneller Ausverkauf eines Teils des Essensangebot, das muss nicht sein.

One of my favorite concerts! Excellent performances by Fatoumata and the band. Very intimate venue with great sound. The folks running everything were happy and professional.

About FATOUMATA DIAWARA

She may be one of the most outstanding voices in world music, but Fatoumata Diawara remains unclassifiable: Afropop, Afrofolk, Afrofuturism... Somewhere between tradition and modernity, guitar in hand, she brings wassoulou rhythms and West African vocal techniques to meet contemporary sounds. A singer, composer, musician and actor, as one of Africa’s leading female voices, she never ceases to surprise: Herbie Hancock, Roberto Fonseca, -M-, Angélique Kidjo, Disclosure, Lauryn Hill; Abderrahmane Sissako and Philippe Godeau for cinema and theatre…

Nsera, the first track from her forthcoming album, is co-written and co-produced by one of the central figures of British pop music, Damon Albarn, an artist with a long history of fusion and collaboration with African musicians. Singing and playing keyboards, the Gorillaz and Blur frontman infuses a touch of melancholy and modernity into the song’s Mandinka sound. This gave rise to a neologism, invented by Fatou for the occasion: “Londonko”.

Nsera will be released on 15 November 2023 and will be transformed into images by Gregory Ohrel (Orelsan, Jain, Residente). An exploration into the heart of African diversity that Fatoumata Diawara previously represented in the “Mali-ko” project (bringing together around forty artists, from all regions of Mali, on a song for peace).

Now Londonko is the name of one imagined continent, bringing the two continents together.

For Fatou, the end of the journey is a return to her home country, which she is still eagerly exploring: her land, her culture, her Destination, “Nsera”. We know that on her album Fenfo, she had “something to say”; on this track it is an invocation for all of Africa to manifest. Africa has a lot to give.

A (re)call for awareness of the true richness of a people who have so much to teach the rest of the world.

Bamako versus Londonko, a story to follow…. and to share.
