From the WMCE 2011 Album of the Year "Fatou".
On her debut album, singer/songwriter Fatoumata Diawara—whom the Telegraph calls “the most beguiling talent to hit the world music scene in some time” and Mojo calls a "spell-weaving new voice"—uses elements of jazz, pop, and funk along with her ancestral Wassoulou tradition. John Paul Jones (bass), Toumani Diabate (kora), and Tony Allen (drums) all make guest appearances. Uncut gives Fatou four stars; Pitchfork calls it "beguiling."
