American audiences were most likely introduced to married duo Amadou & Mariam, who met at a Malian school for the blind, with their 2004 Nonesuch debut Dimanche à Bamako, produced by the Paris-based world-music provocateur Manu Chao. With Chao behind the wheel, the album is like an exhilaratingly bumpy taxi ride straight into the heart of the Malian capital; cacophonous sounds of the streets mixed in with the spare, propulsive rhythms of the songs, making it all sound thrillingly immediate. The album served as a major breakthrough for the duo, already into the second decade of their overseas career; earning a nomination for a 2006 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary World Music Album, reaching the top of the French album chart on its way to a Gold certification, and winning a Les Victoires de la Musique award, the French equivalent of a Grammy.
