Fatoumata Diawara, photographed for the latest issue of Guitarist.
The Grammy Award nominee, famous for blending southern Malian music with her ubiquitous red Gibson, had the pleasure of being photographed at the side of a Premier Inn bar in Bristol (massive thanks to the staff there for being extra helpful to a photographer turning up under the impression we had a meeting room set up…)
The full interview by Rod Brakes is a great read, delving into Fatoumata’s influences and style.
