Amadou & Mariam with Blind Boys of Alabama

This event has been rescheduled as we are currently closed due to the coronavirus crisis: all tickets are valid for the new date.

The great ambassadors of Malian music join forces with gospel group Blind Boys of Alabama for a double bill of sensational music.

Husband and wife musical duo Amadou & Mariam have released a string of acclaimed albums, working with producers like Manu Chao and Damon Albarn to create joyous music that inspires great live shows and wild remixes.

It was on a festival bill that they first met the Blind Boys of Alabama and forged a friendship that has led to a worldwide tour together.

The Blind Boys have won multiple Grammy awards with their remarkable interpretations of everything from traditional gospel favorites to contemporary spiritual material by songwriters such as Eric Clapton, Prince and Tom Waits.
