Amadou and Mariam For November Album Release and Exclusive London Show!

The blind marriage of African legends Amadou and Mariam release their new album ‘Welcome to Mali’ on Monday 17th November. The album, on Because Music, is the follow up to the duo’s celebrated 2005 ‘Dimanche à Bamako’, which sold more than half a million copies in France alone. Amadou and Mariam bind French lyrics in to the most addictive songs.

Glasswerk rocked along to their mesmorizing set at Latitude Festival where the new songs were given a triumphant airing. On first listen title track 'Welcome To Mali' is perhaps their best song so far. The new album features a track produced by Damon Albarn called ‘Sabali', which will be the first single, plus special guest appearances by K’naan, Keziah Jones, ‘M’, Toumani Diabate, Tiken Jah Fakoli and Juan Rozoff.

Amadou & Mariam will also be performing in London later this year as a prelude to a worldwide tour.
