Amadou and Mariam are a musical duo from Mali, composed of the couple Mariam Doumbia
(vocals) (born in Mali's capital Bamako 15 April 1958) and Amadou Bagayoko
(guitar and vocals) (born in Bamako 24 October 1954). The pair, known as "the blind couple from Mali" met at Mali's Institute for the Young Blind, and found they shared an interest in music. The duo produces music that mixes traditional Mali sound with rock
guitars, Syrian violins, Cuban trumpets, Egyptian ney, Colombian trombones, Indian tablas and Dogon percussion.
