“Je pense a toi” (19__) Amadou & Mariam

Amadou and Mariam are a musical duo from Mali, composed of the couple Mariam Doumbia (vocals) and Amadou Bagayoko (guitar and vocals). 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. They first came to international attention at the beginning of the 2000s via radio stations such as Radio Nova from Paris.
