The classic debut album from Grammy-nominated Malian singer-songwriter Fatoumata Diawara, 'Fatou' was originally released in 2011 to great critical acclaim and features guests Toumani Diabaté on kora, Tony Allen on drums and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones on bass. Since the release, Fatoumata's profile has further grown thanks to her features with Disclosure, Gorillaz and Africa Express.
These are strong, simple songs with emotions that transcend language.
...a thrilling listen...A graceful, subtle album that increases its hold with every play.
The most beguiling talent to hit the world music scene in some time... this stylish debut doesn't put a foot wrong.
