Song of the day: Je pense a toi - I am thinking of you...

Amadou & Mariam are a musical duo from Mali, who met at Mali's Institute for the Young Blind.

The duo's early recordings in the 80s and 90s feature spare arrangements of guitar and voice. Since the late 1990s Amadou & Mariam produce music that mixes traditional Mali sound with rock guitars, Syrian violins, Cuban trumpets, Egyptian ney, Colombian trombones, Indian tablas and Dogon percussion. All these elements put together have been referred to as "Afro-blues".
