Event details

For decades Amadou & Mariam has been celebrated as one of the most famous ambassadors for Malian and African music around the world – a golden status that the band carries with brio and playfully challenges with each new album.

Amadou & Mariam has collaborated with everyone from Damon Albarn of Blur to Manu Chao. Featured on the duo’s youthful and lively songs are a diversity of innovative and emerging pop artists from Santigold to TV On The Radio and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Remixes by Yuksek, Henrik Schwarz, Miike Snow and Ashley Beedle are further proof of the band’s acclaim, underlining the intrinsically danceable quality of its songs.

Amadou & Mariam has played the world’s biggest festivals, from Coachella to Glastonbury, and opened for bands such as Coldplay and the Scissor Sisters. Along the way, it has inspired many artists to mix Afro and electro sounds, such as MHD, DJ Mujava, Awesome Tapes From Africa, Four Tet and Jamie xx.

By enriching its Afro-pop with new influences and by introducing the world to the richness and subtleties of African music, the duo has brought African music to the charts and to the dance floor.

‘Shimmering Afro-pop that urges hope and offers uplift.’ Pitchfork
