Amadou & Mariam
The self-billed "blind couple from Mali," who collaborated with cutting-edge stars such as Santigold, TV on the Radio's Kyp Malone, Theophilus London and Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears on last year's Folila, shows off its transporting African pop at a free outdoor gig. In the opening slot, impressive Tuareg singer-guitarist Omara "Bombino" Moctar shares his trademark headstrong spirit, dusty Saharan grooves and chilled-out guitar rock.
