Introduction to Amadou & Mariam

Amadou & Mariam are a musical duo from Mali.

I first came across them as part of an Africa Express concert at The Barbican a few years ago

I don’t know them well enough to recognise specific songs but this doesn’t really matter – they have an irresistible sound, and pretty much everything they do is wonderful
