Fatoumata Diawara Booking Agency Profile

Mali's Ouragahio is the birthplace of singer Fatoumata Diawara (often known as Fatou). She joined her father's dance group when she was young and became well-known for her performances of the highly jerky didadi dance from Wassoulou, where she was raised in western Mali.
Fatou found herself on a movie set caring for her actress aunt's little child. The director of the movie, who was mesmerized by Fatou's youthful attractiveness, gave her a one-line role in the movie's concluding scene, "Taafe Fangan" ( "The Power of Women"). As a result, renowned filmmaker Cheick Omar Sissoko gave her the main part in his movie "La Genèse" (Genesis) When she was eighteen, Fatou went to Paris to take the theater role of Antigone in the ancient Greek play Antigone. After touring with the play, she went back to Mali and was awarded the main role in Dani Kouyaté's well-known movie "Sia, The Dream of the Python." The movie chronicles the life of Sia, a young woman from West Africa who challenges conventional wisdom. She has been acting and making music since then.
The Gorillaz song "Désolé," which was eventually included on their album Song Machine, Season One: Weird Timez, featured Diawara. She released the CD Maliba later that year as the music for a Google Arts and Culture initiative to digitize manuscripts kept in Timbuktu. "A magnificent achievement of cultural preservation by one of the top names in modern African music," The Economist called the record..

Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price as well. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
