Amadou Bagayoko and Mariam Doumbia’s sensationally successful Dimanche à Bamako was the highest ever chart-placing African record in Europe. Effortlessly funky and full of insanely catchy tunes, the recording mirrors Amadou and Mariam live: Amadou playing stinging guitar lines and Mariam singing soulfully. Their hypnotic performances also incorporate touches of reggae, jazz, blues, and rock.
