A rising star on the indigenous music scene, Paris-based Diawara has used her early career as backing singer to Malian great Oumou Sangare to her benefit; latest album 'Fatou' has been picked up by the World Circuit label and features Tony Allen, Toumani Diabaté and Led Zep's John Paul Jones, among others. Hear her soft, laid-back and acoustic take on Mali's rich musical heritage, supported by delicate, French, kora-aided acoustica from Yann Tambour as Stranded Horse.
