Amadou and Mariam

1 hour
First broadcast:

Some of Mali's top musicians performing on the floating stage in this new festival in Segou in central Mali. Lucy Duran talks to
Sekouba Bambino, a singer from Guinea.

Amadou and Mariam, the husband and wife duo who have become an international musical sensation in the past year, perform for their home audience, in a more raw and rootsy style than their European concert audiences hear. They are also joined by reggea artist Tiken Jah Fakoly.
