6/2/2011 African Rhythms


Fatoumata Diawara is a Malian singer born in the Ivory Coast, now living in Paris, who upon Oumou Sangare's recommendation was signed to World Circuit Records. Her debut album will be released in the fall but World Circuit has just issued an EP and we started off today's African Rhythms with the lead track Kanou. With stops all around the continent and beyond, the show wrapped up with a preview of next week's Black Uhuru show at the Cedar.
