Amidst all the other big rock festivals and Rolling Stones shenanigans, there's another can't miss show flying under the radar this week. That would be Amadou & Mariam, the Blind Couple from Mali, who are playing the World Cafe Live on Thursday in support of their 2012 album Folila. With the breakthrough with the Manu Chao-produced Dimanche A Bamako in 2004, the duo's ebullient music turned them into internatonal stars, with fashionable types like Santigold and TV on the Radio lining up to guest on their records. Check out Folila's "Oh Amadou" featuring Bertrand Cantat below for a taste. Show details here.
