American gospel voyages back to its African roots in this compelling collaboration between two of today’s greatest world music groups.
Malian duo Amadou & Mariam have been producing hits since the 1980s, spanning genres from Afro-pop to global dance. Playing with international stars including Damon Albarn, Scissor Sisters, Coldplay and U2, they combine influences from Africa, the Middle East, Cuba, India and more in their unmistakable Afro-blues.
Living legends in gospel music and winners of five Grammy awards, the Blind Boys of Alabama came together as children in 1930s America. They have been spreading their rapturous gospel songs worldwide across more than seven decades since.
Mali and the American South come together in this electrifying celebration of rock and gospel.
