Dougou Badia

Following collaborations with Manu Chao and Damon Albarn, and their critically favored album Welcome to Mali, the blind, mid-life Central African couple amped-up their hipster quotient ever higher for the making of their album Folila by enlisting special guests. Featuring Santigold and Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner on complimentary vocal and guitar flash, "Dougou Badia," the album's first single, was buzzworthy and yet still grounded in the duo's signature joie de vivre. "People are surprised by the quality of our music, and the way we are able to play with other musicians, to fit into other kinds of music — that is what amazes them," said Mariam.
