Amadou and Mariam

These two are an amazing blind couple from Mali who do just about the funkiest fusiony stuff I've ever heard. They sing and play guitar. Check out the album *Dimanche a Bamako*, produced by Manu Chao. (OKAY, the first person to use the word *obsessed* gets an e-slap, I swear. Denial? That would be a river in Egypt, no?) Anyway, absolute phenomenon of an album; it's been making me very happy.

Chek out their official site, complete with track samples:

I'd love for them to come to Vancouver, but I'm not holding my breath.
