    Video: Fatoumata Diawara Performs on BBC Two's "Later ... with Jools Holland"

    Fatoumata Diawara, whose debut EP, Kanou, was released digitally in North America on World Circuit / Nonesuch Records earlier this week, was a guest on Later ... with Jools Holland on BBC Two in the UK this week. On Tuesday's half-hour show, she performed her song "Clandestin," another live version of which is featured on the EP. You can watch the Later performance below. Fans in the UK can see Diawara perform again on this week's hour-long Later show Friday night. For more information, visit bbc.co.uk/later.

    Inspired by Wassoulou tradition, jazz, and blues, Fatoumata Diawara has created her own unique contemporary folk sound, giving a distinctly African spin to the concept of the female singer-songwriter. "Like her mentor [Oumou] Sangaré," says the Financial Times, "Diawara combines feminist social conscience with effortless melodic charm." The Kanou digital EP includes four tracks plus the video for the song "Bissa," which you can watch at nonesuch.com/media. To download the EP, visit the Nonesuch Store now.
