Amadou & Mariam are a musical duo from Mali, composed of the couple Mariam Doumbia (vocals) and Amadou Bagayoko (guitar and vocals). The pair, who are both blind, met at Mali's Institute for the Young Blind, and found they shared an interest in music. * Joe Claussells' remix strips down the Amadou & Miriam's song" Bara" by extending and building their percussive intro into a blissful dub spin into a soaring guitar and vocal chorus. A sublime example of one of NYC's iconic disco leftfield producer/Djs from the legendary Body & Soul Sunday afternoon/early evening parties in Manhattan and continues the legacy of Candido, Mancuso, Levan, Siano. This privately pressed 12" on Claussels label Sacred Rhythm is widely coveted as one of the best and rarest. The record for sale is Ex+ unplayed and includes the insert liner sheet by Claussell.
