Amadou and Mariam -- My Favorite Blind African Duo
Any moment now I'll finish my list of the best CDs of 2005. And right near the top will be Amadou and Mariam's "Dimanche a Bamako," a heady mix of their traditional style mixed with the irrepresibly catch Manu Chao's pop-ish production. It's sold a remarkable 600,000 copies worldwide so far and you should make it 600,001. The Times of London catches up with them.
