Name checked by TIME magazine as "one the world's best new voices of 2012," Fatoumata Diawara is definitely one to watch. This new singer from Mali joins an illustrious line of great Malian talent the likes of Toumani Diabata and Amadou and Mariam.
Diawara has performed at numerous venues with, among others, Bobby Womack, Herbie Hancock, Tony Allen and Flea. We particularly love her collaboration with Bobby Womack on The Bravest Man in the Universe, Nothin' Can Save Ya. Her new album, Fatou, released August 2012 should be a huge success and we hope you enjoy this song Bissa.
Til next week!!
