Mali-born, Paris-based Fatoumata Diawara is young, gorgeous, and rocks out a little more than fellow Wassoulou-style singers Oumou Sangaré, for whom she has supplied backing vocals, or Rokia Traoré. Led by singer-songwriter Reuben Koroma, Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars have evolved into road-seasoned ambassadors of peace through reggae-inflected afropop. Les Frères Guissé, from northern Senegal, play Sahel music reminiscent of Ali Farka Touré and add close, sweet harmonies.
