Saw her last night here in Brighton. An absolutely commanding stage presence with a smile that could light up the sky. Her band were brilliant too, played as one person from the first chord, laying down a solid groove that just went on and on. And her voice is remarkable. The support act was just great too. The music, though from an alien tradition, is very accessible.
She is on a short tour here that takes in Derby Cork Dublin and Amsterdam before going to Adelaide for 3 days.
If you can, go see! She is fabulous. Would that there was anyone producing music half as exciting in our western pop music tradition.
There is a link in this page to a stream of her performance at last years WOMAD festival.
