Chimurenga Renaissance
Fatoumata Diawara

Friday, March 4, 2022 9:30 PM Zankel Hall
Chimurenga Renaissance by Kelly O, Fatoumata Diawara by Aida Muluneh
Comprising Tendai “Baba” Maraire and guitarist Hussein Kalonji, Chimurenga Renaissance brilliantly blends experimental hip-hop with traditional African music to create a captivating and consistently surprising “trans-Atlantic mélange” (NPR) that speaks to a range of postmodern and politically conscious sensibilities. Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, and actress Fatoumata Diawara—one of the most relevant female voices of the new generation of African artists—covers a gamut of styles from blues, funk, and rock to syncopated Afro-pop, always honoring her past, but with a sound and message that confidently looks to the future.
