Sabali

Nothing new under the sun with the track "Sabali" made of the fantastic African duo Amadou & Mariam, or actually the fantastic couple Amadou & Mariam also known as "the blind couple from Mali". They are husband and wife and they got married back in 1980 and have been collaborating within music since then.

In 2008 they released the album "Welcome to Mali" (produced by Damon Albarn of Blur and Gorillaz), where the first track was "Sabali", a great electronic track that you really can't compare to any other track on the album. All their tracks are fantastic but "Sabali" sticks out to an electronic fan like me and when Paul Epworth made a mighty fine remix of it, I was sold. The other remix is inspired of the African music style Kudoro that was founded in Angola in the 80s.
