[DAIL'ITSPOP] #8 01.18.12 Amadou & Mariam feat. Santigold - Dougou Badia

#What? Dougou Badia (single)

#Who? Amadou & Mariam feat. Santigold. The couple from Mali were joined by queen of crazy tribal pop for one of the many collaborations on A&M's forthcoming album Folila, out March 26.

#Fact/ Amadou & Mariam might be the most successful African musicians at the moment. If you've never listened to their soulful and beautiful music, well you should. Sabali, from their previous record Welcome To Mali is such a good song it's perfect to dance & cry to. It was dancefloor-approved no later than last weekend, mind you. There's also a song with Scissor Sister Jake Shears on the new album, which I've just listened to tonight, and let me tell you something: it's seriously AMAZING. Chéri je te fais un gros bisou, as Mariam would say.

#Link/ An EP containing the track (and another one with French singer Bertrand Cantat) was just released. Buy it here (FR) (UK)
