Fatoumata Diawara‘s lovely new CD Fatou hit record store shelves in the UK on Tuesday and my mailbox on Wednesday (nice job Royal Mail + USPS!). We heard a couple of tracks from that record on today’s African Rhythms, along with a set of contemporary Afro-Latin-Salsa-Cumbia cuts from the USA and the usual eclectic mix of music from the continent and beyond. You can hear the show for two weeks at the KFAI site.

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. The show is available for two weeks as an MP3 stream at the KFAI site.
