I don’t have a cool story about how I came across Fatou’s music. I was listening to Sona Jobarteh on Youtube and somehow ended up finding her. Maybe that’s cool enough. Born in 1982 in Ivory Coast, she is a Malian singer-songwriter and multiple Grammy Award nominee currently living in France [Wikipedia Bio].
Where Fatou rocks for me:
- As background music when I entertain guests
- When I’m cooking (Add a glass of wine and it’s a party)
I have challenged myself to discover new music from around Africa and the world and listen to more of it. I will share as much of it as I can here and online using the hashtag #MyDiscoveryPlaylist.

I believe that every serious artist should be able to make a living from their work if they want to and I’m on a mission to find the best tools, ideas, and resources to help artists succeed. I experiment with business models, monetization ideas, and new technology in my own creative process as part of this journey of discovering.
