Love Fatoumata Diawara! Saw her rock the stage at Zellerbach Hall this evening and man can this woman can sing. But my favorite part of the night was when she went through this particular 6/8 beat and showed how traditions from across the African continent dance to this rhythm. Congo, Ethiopia, Mali, Senegal, Saharan nomadic folks all express this 6/8 in different physical fluidity. But it wasnt just this light understanding of the dances. It was embodiment. Right on, Fatou. See you next time!
