**Sourced From calabashmusic.com** Fatou Guewel Diouf hails from a traditional griot family in Senegal, starting her career singing about the Mouride of Senegal, namely Cheikh Mohamadou Kara Mbacke. Fatou Guewel is currently Senegal's most popular female artist. Young, prolific and energetic, this is her international debut CD release.
