Fatoumata Diawara’s 2011 debut LP saw her hailed as a thrilling new standard-bearer of Mali’s celebrated musical traditions. Since then, she’s featured in collaborations with Bobby Womack, Herbie Hancock, Roberto Fonseca and Damon Albarn, plus compatriots Amadou and Mariam, Oumou Sangaré and Toumani Diabaté. 2018’s Grammy-nominated second album, Fenfo, showcased her compelling range and depth of expression amid a vibrant array of ancient and modern sounds. “One of the most dynamic voices in Afropop today” (PopMatters)

Also drawing fruitfully on both old and new, Nordic duo VILDÁ evoke their wild native landscapes in a unique fusion of Sámi joiks and Finnish accordion tradition, allied with shamanic grooves, beatboxing, throat-singing and electronica.
