Amadou and Mariam Remix Album

December 3, 2010 § Leave a comment

According to Pitchfork, this month we will supposedly see an Amadou & Mariam remix album. This is a bit startling to hear at first simply because A&M aren’t really the remix ready type of group, but after only a minute or two of the first song release, I am pumped.

For those of you not in the know, Amadou & Mariam are the blind couple from Mali who have fans all over the world. They met at a school for the blind, with Amadou being Mariam’s teacher. Not only does Amadou’s sexy guitar blend wonderfully with Mariam’s voice, but they come from one of the most musically rich countries in the world (you can bet you’ll see plenty of Mali music on the Sphere in the future). It also doesn’t hurt they collaborated with “world music superstar” Manu Chao on their latest project. Check out “Welcome to Mali” below from the 2010 World Cup Kickoff Concert.
