Gilles Peterson // Worldwide Awards 2015 // Introducing Fatima
November 10, 2014
Few vocalists can claim to have worked with such a diverse array of musicians, a true testament of her capabilities, talent and versatilely, Fatima’s list of collaborators spans the likes of Floatings Points (inc the Ensemble), Shafiq Husayn (Sa-Ra), Dam Funk, Scratcha DVA, Dorian Concept, Funkineven, Ras G, VeebeO and Teebs to name but a few. Born in Stockholm, Sweden but currently residing East London, Fatima is a nomadic child of the cosmos, drawing upon life inspiration and energy in everything from LA Freeways, London basements and The Sea through to Earth Wind And Fire and the sky above.
