AMADOU & MARIAM

July 5 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

| $30 - $39

Event Navigation

Five years after Folila, their last energetic rock album where the cream of the future of pop music collaborated, the Malian duo Amadou & Mariam are back with one of their trademark sensual and highly danceable gems. The godparents of the Afrobeat and modern pop mélange, and the mix between traditional and electronic music, have a new album, La Confusion, produced by Adrien Durand. He’s the orchestrator of the project Bon Voyage Organisation, mixing African and Asian influences, disco and electro and giving a new sheen to the concept of world music. “Boufou Safou”, the first single, with its bouncy lyrics in Bambara and French, is a small gem of slow-paced Afro-disco, carried by Mariam’s magical voice, gently poking fun at the nonchalance of African boys. This places the duo in the same electro-dance territory explored a few years back with producer Damon Albarn on Welcome to Mali’s “Sabali”. It is a tribute to personalities such as Francis Bebey or William Oneyeabor who, very early on, started mixing traditional music and experimentations. With remixes by Africaine 808, Fatima Yamaha, Henrik Schwarz and Pakem, Amadou & Mariam are back on the dance floor.
