Amadou & Mariam: Welcome to Mali
Buy! - (Because/Nonesuch)
The blind Malian couple follows up their 2005 international breakthrough album Dimanche a Bamako with another forward-thinking blend of traditional Malian styles with rock, funk, blues, hip hop, R&B, reggae and more. While many special guests contribute including Damon Albarn, kora master Toumani Diabate and Afro-Canadian rapper K’naan, the record is powered by the duo’s soulful vocals and Amadou’s spiky and bluesy electric guitar. Out last year in Europe, this album is just now being released in the US. 3/10/2009 - Don Yates
