Amadou & Mariam

Amadou & Mariam released their new album, Folila, earlier this year with guest vocals from Santigold, TV On The Radio's Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone, Bertrand Cantat, Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears, Ebony Bones, Abdallah Oumbadougou, and Theophilus London. The album also features guitar from Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and production from Manu Chao, Damon Albarn, and Marc-Antoine Moreau. If you've yet to hear the album, you can stream it below via a spotify widget.

Amadou & Mariam have a number of upcoming shows and festival appearances scheduled, including Lollapalooza, Osheaga, Outside Lands, and they'll be coming to NYC for a free Central Park Summerstage show this Saturday (8/4) at 3 PM with Folila guest Theophilus London. Maybe he'll make an on-stage appearance during their set?

Very disappointed they are not playing a NYC show that starts after 7pm.

I remember hearing them and thinking this is so beautiful. It's not my genre of music but I still really like it. It's so calm and beautiful. I think many people could like it even if it isn't their genre taste.
