Amadou & Mariam – Live Date

Amadou & Mariam - Live Date

Amadou & Mariam, from Mali, became international stars in 2006 with the global success of their groundbreaking ‘Dimanche à Bamako’ album which has sold close to 700,000 copies around the world – a phenomenal achievement for an African recording. In France alone, Amadou & Mariam’s European home, the album has gone platinum with over 300,000 sales. Indeed, ‘Dimanche à Bamako’ reached number two in the French national pop chart, the highest chart-placing ever achieved by an African album anywhere in Europe. Amadou & Mariam’s significance has also been recognised in a welter of awards such as ‘The Album of the Year’ and ‘Best African’ accolades in the UK’s prestigious BBC Radio 3 Awards for World Music 2006.

‘Coulibaly’ is one of the signature tracks of the album which was produced by the celebrated French / Latin artist Manu Chao. The new remixes, especially those featuring Kano and Akon, are bound to introduce even more people to the African superstars Amadou & Mariam.

AMADOU & MARIAM celebrate the end of an astonishing year with a headlining show at London’s Roundhouse on Monday 11th December – doors 7pm.

Also on the bill is the acclaimed Somalian rap artist K’NAAN together with the Guinean kora master BA CISSOKO and special guest DJ, BBC Radio 1’s ROB DA BANK.
