Summer Soundtrack: Amadou and Mariam

Posted on August 08, 2013 by Kirsten Read | 1 Comment

Amadou & Mariam are a Grammy Award-nominated musical duo from Mali, composed of the couple Amadou Bagayoko (guitar and vocals) and Mariam Doumbia (vocals). The pair, known as "the blind couple from Mali" met at Mali's Institute for the Young Blind, where they both performed at the Institute’s Eclipse Orchestra, directed by Idrissa Soumaouro, and found they shared an interest in music. Here is one of our favorites songs that we've had on repeat all summer. 

Amadou and Mariam ft. Santigold - Dougou Badia

Mali is also home to one of our producers, Proud Mary. Through established long-term relationships, Proud Mary collaborates with men's and women's textile and sewing cooperatives to create accessories and home furnishings made using traditional weaving and dyeing methods. 

 We love all of the creative work coming out of Mali!
