    Fatoumata Diawara Launches North American Summer Tour
    Youri Lenquette

    Fatoumata Diawara, whose debut album, Fatou, was released in North America last summer on World Circuit / Nonesuch Records, returns to North America for a summer-long tour of the United States and Canada. This leg of her tour begins at The Music Hall in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, tonight then heads to Tennessee for the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival on Friday. The two-month tour takes Diawara and her band to cities throughout California, into Canada, the US Midwest, and the East Coast, including headline shows, summer festivals sets, and a concert in New York's Central Park for SummerStage. 

    See below for all of Diawara's currently scheduled tour dates; for additional details and ticket links, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    On her debut album, Fatou, 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, Toumani Diabate, and Tony Allen all make guest appearances. Uncut gives Fatou four stars; Pitchfork calls it "beguiling." The Washington Post says "her well-crafted songs are quietly powerful." To pick up a copy of Fatou, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include a download of the complete album at checkout.
