Fatoumata Diawara

When: Fri., April 13, 8-10 p.m. 2018

Singer-songwriter Fatoumata Diawara visits the Carnegie Library Lecture Hall tonight. Originally from Mali, Diawara recently found a home among the French — making her an exceptional fit for the Warhol/Carnegie Nexus event series “Becoming Migrant ... What Moves You?” Diawara’s impeccable vocal tone and control combined with emotive melodies will make this event a magical evening of world music. Her unconventional approach to both electric and acoustic guitars is refreshing. Diawara once described her song, “Kélé,” as about finding peace — specifically for Mali — but also within the hearts of anyone listening. - Emily Bennett
