Amadou & Mariam
Amadou Bagayoko plays nasty, vamping blues beside wife Mariam Doumbia, a pepper-voiced chanteuse, with glorious results. The fact that the blind couple has the onstage presence of stately, mythical Tiresia only adds to their allure. Tonight's show in the hotel's penthouse is a the second in their "L'Afrik C'est Chic" series of three monthly concerts and jam sessions with surprise guests. The couple's music director, Marc Antoine Moreau, kicks things off with a DJ set.
