Amadou & Mariam feat. Santigold & Nick Zinner - 'Dougou Badia'

Brilliant mash-up madness

Amadou & Mariam feat. Santigold & Nick Zinner - 'Dougou Badia'

The meshing of Malian couple Amadou and Mariam’s sparkling harmonies with Nick Zinner’s circular, rockabilly guitar riff and Santigold’s chiming, ever-adaptable vocal style may have the touch of mash-up madness about it, but that’s exactly what makes this track so brilliant. A chuffing great masterstroke of genre-less genre mixing.
