Amadou Mariam Welcome Mali

Released in Europe via Because Music, Nonesuch Records has ushered Amadou Bagayoko and Mariam Doumbia’s Welcome To Mali into America just as it did with 2005’s Dimanche à Bamako. Produced by Marc Antoine Moreau, Laurent Jais and Damon Albarn (Blur/Gorillaz) the duo’s fifth studio release features guest appearances by Juan Rozoff, Keziah Jones and Somali-Canadian MC K’naan. The lead single from the album, the Damon Albarn produced “Sabali,” has spawned a music video.
