Amadou & Mariam

The most genuine Afro blues comes from Amadou & Mariam, the couple who met decades ago at an institute for blind youth in Mali and who have since become known for blending the traditional rhythms of their country with electric guitars, Indian tablas, Syrian violins, Egyptian ney, and many other elements to create an irresistible fusion that has enjoyed overwhelming success on European stages. The joyful “Mogolu” is their latest single, but in reality, what they are promoting on this tour are the best songs of their career, grouped in the double compilation La Vie est Belle. Best Of (2024), which features the best of their two and a half decades of discography.
