Amadou & Mariam: Folila
Buy! - (Nonesuch)
The latest album from the blind Malian husband-and-wife duo finds them joined by a variety of special guests including Santigold, Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner, TV On The Radio’s Kyp Malone and Tunde Adebimpe and Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears for another vibrant blend of Afro-pop and traditional Malian styles with rock, hip hop, funk, blues and more. While the production is occasionally a little overly busy, most of the songs work beautifully, thanks mainly to the power of Amadou’s driving electric guitar and the duo’s potent call-and-response vocals and unshakeable grooves. 4/13/2012 - Don Yates
