  • Amadou & Mariam's digital EP Mali Meets Latin America features remixes of four tracks from their 2012 album Folila by artists from Buenos Aires (Frikstailers and King Coya, aka Gaby Kerpel) and Bogotá (Bomba Estéreo and Sidestepper). The EP was inspired by the couple’s first visit to perform in Mexico, Colombia, Chile, and Argentina in 2012, when they met several of the producers featured on this collection.

  • Folila, Amadou & Mariam's first studio album since 2009's acclaimed Welcome to Mali, was helmed by longtime producer Marc-Antoine Moreau and epitomizes the duo's embrace of collaboration, with contributions by Santigold, TV on the Radio, Nick Zinner, Theophilus London, Bassekou Kouyate, and others. "From start to finish," says the Christian Science Monitor, "Folila can barely contain the joy." The Independent says: "[A]t the heart of every song is the irresistible combination of Amadou's trilling, cyclical guitar figures and the duo's uplifting vocal harmonies."

  • This digital EP includes "Dougou Badia," the first song off Amadou & Mariam's forthcoming album, Folila. Santigold, who co-wrote the song with Mariam, joins her on vocals. Also included are an alternate mix of the song by Danger Mouse cohort Kennie Takahashi; the album track “Oh Amadou” (with Bertrand Cantat); and a live version of “Wily Kataso” from Eclipse, a show staged in complete darkness at the 2011 Manchester International Festival.

  • This Remixes collection features favorite singles from Amadou & Mariam's best-selling albums Welcome to Mali and Dimanche à Bamako, along with several new versions, and some previously unreleased mixes, from across their catalog by what Pitchfork calls a "wonderfully random" group of collaborators. Highlights include new versions of the single "Sabali" by Miike Snow and French techno maestro Vitalic; and "Afrika" revisited by Bob Sinclar.

  • The Malian couple's second Nonesuch disc features exuberant vocals, propulsive grooves, and guitar licks that embrace blues, rock, and the hypnotic sounds of its homeland. "African pop doesn't get any more effervescent and joyful," declared London's Sunday Mirror; the Observer Music Monthly gives it five stars. Guests include Damon Albarn, Somalian rapper K'Naan, and kora master Toumani Diabaté. Double-LP vinyl release also includes complete album on CD and MP3.

  • This blind, married pair of musicians became an international sensation by combining their funky Malian sound with the playfully subversive grooves of French-Basque star Manu Chao. London’s Evening Standard calls this "a CD with a warm heart and a wide appeal."
