How does one say Awesome in Bambara?

by Lucyland on Feb 8, 2008

Husband and wife Amadou Bagayoko and Mariam Doumbia did it again, this time with the help of Manu Chao. Those already enamored with the King and Queen of Malian pop will easily recognize Mr. Chao's pen, such as on Camions Sauvages and Politic Amagni, but the more stellar tunes?Artistiya, Coulibaly, La Réalité, and La Fête au Village?belong to them. Neither pure rock or pure Malian music they are somewhere in between and much more. Their production, musicianship, songwriting, and confluence of musical textures from here there and everywhere never fail in producing great tunes, and as always Amadou demonstrates his capacity for a mean guitar lick. If you are new to Amadou et Mariam?s music, start here and follow up with ?Sou Ni Tile? and ?Tje Ni Mousso?, and so on. Highly recommended!
