Amadou & Mariam
Wicked amazing Wiki background:
Amadou & Mariam are a Grammy Award-nominated musical duo from Mali, composed of the couple Amadou Bagayoko and Mariam Doumbia. The pair, known as “the blind couple from Mali” met at Mali’s Institute for the Young Blind, where they both performed at the Institute’s Eclipse Orchestra, directed by Idrissa Soumaouro, and found they shared an interest in music. Amadou lost his vision at the age of 16, while Mariam became blind at age 5 as a consequence of untreated measles.
If you don’t know Hans Zimmer, you should! He’s produced the music for most of Hollywood’s greatest movies. Some of his best include Black Hawk Down (above video), Gladiator, The Dark Knight, and Inception.
