Rainy Day Music with a gorilla

A few tracks I have been listening to the last couple days during the “El Nino” fun I have been having with my leaking roof. Both of them put together or produced by Damon Albarn of blur/gorillaz.

First up is Sabali by Amadou & Mariam. They are a blind couple from Mali who met at the blind institute and make great music. Listen to the track which is sang in their native tongue of Bambara-French. Then take a look at the lyrics here.

Amadou & Mariam – Sabali

Next up is the Gorillaz track Stylo. To be able to repeat success of their last album is going to be tough. But if “Plastic Beach” which is dropping in March pulls it off they will have to have more tracks as good as this one. Great collaboration with Bobby Womack and Mos Def.
