Amadou and Mariam, the famed “blind couple from Mali,” bring their grooving, GRAMMY-nominated mix of Malian pop and Hendrix-flavored blues-rock with “spine-tingling harmonies that make the music soar.” (Spin) The Bamako-born husband and wife met at while students at Mali’s Institute for the Young Blind, and found a shared interest in music and performing. Since that momentous meeting, the couple has risen through the African and European music scenes to become one of the hottest world music acts today, sharing the stage with artists including Coldplay, U2, Alicia Keys and Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour.
