Malian musician Fatoumata Diawara combines elements of jazz and funk with the rocking rhythms and plaintive melodies of her ancestral Wassoulou tradition. As a young actor and musician, she made the decision to dedicate herself to her passion: music. Between recording sessions she has found time to collaborate on Damon Albarn’s Africa Express and contribute vocals to albums by Cheikh Lô, AfroCubism, Herbie Hancock’s Grammy–winning Imagine Project and Orchestra Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou.
