The Mali-born, Paris-based singer in the Wassoulou tradition makes her local solo debut. A gorgeous young performer who rocks out a little more than Oumou Sangare, whom she has backed, and Rokia Traore, whom she resembles on acoustic guitar, Diawara released Fatou on the tasteful and discerning World Circuit and Nonesuch labels last year. Expect her fans to be dressed to impress.
