the duo meld afrobeats with synthpop textures, jolly guitar riffs, creating an exciting Malian roots/western indie pop fusion that makes for an uplifting and eclectic record.

Hailing from Mali, Amadou Bagayoko and Mariam Doumbia first met as children at Mali's Institute for the Young Blind - both lost their vision at an early age. It was here that they began performing in the institute's Eclipse Orchestra. Eventually the couple would marry and began recording together in the 80s. Over the span of three decades, Amadou (guitar and vocals) and Mariam (vocals) developed an international following having recorded eight full-length albums and toured around the world. Their album ‘Welcome To Mali’ (2008) was nominated for the "Best Contemporary World Music Album" at the 52ndGrammy Awards. we recommend if you enjoy ennanga vision, owiny sigoma band and konono no 1.
