Amadou & Mariam, the famed “blind couple from Mali,” will fire up Davies Symphony Hall with their grooving mix of Malian pop and Hendrix-flavored blues-rock. 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. Their latest Nonesuch album, Folila, features collaborations with Damon Albarn, TV On The Radio and Santigold.
