The self-described blind couple from Mali goes from strength to strength on new album Folila (“music” in Bambara), a double disc that features contributions from TV on the Radio, Jake Shears, Santigold and Nick Zinner. And yes, the thought just occurred to us, tooÑthose are all New York musicians, this show’s in New York.É We’re crossing our fingers for guest spots. Collaborator and buddy Theophilus London opens.
