Amadou & Mariam

18 Jul 2018 (19:00) at Róisín Dubh

€30 (€27 members)
Galway International Arts Festival Heineken Big Top

World music superstars, Amadou & Mariam bring their unique mix of Malian pop and Hendrix–flavoured blues–rock to the Heineken Big Top stage for their only Irish performance this year.
The Bamako–born husband and wife have risen through the African and European music scenes to become one of the hottest world music acts today, sharing the stage with artists including Coldplay, U2, Alicia Keys, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, Scissor Sisters, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Damon Albarn.

Recordings such as Dimanche A Bamako [Manu Chao, producer]; Welcome to Mali, and Folila broadened Amadou & Mariam’s international appeal by introducing African soul to electro–pop, art– rock and hip–hop. Amadou Bagayoko and Mariam Doumbia have toured the world for over 30 years, with their ‘spine–tingling harmonies that make the music soar’ [Spin], played the main stage at Glastonbury, supported Blur at Hyde Park and performed at the Nobel Peace Prize concert in honour of Barack Obama.

Their latest album La Confusion sees Mali’s most popular artists return to stake their claim as two of Africa’s most successful musical ambassadors of the 21st century.

Please note: This is a fully seated concert. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

‘An extraordinary show. Joyous mix of Afropop and desert blues.’
