Amadou & Mariam+Theophilus London+Just a Band
Amadou Bagayoko plays tasty blues vamps beside wife Mariam Doumbia, a pepper-voiced chanteuse, with glorious results. They have a knack for adapting their signature sound to nearly any context, and vice versa: Electropop rapper/singer Theophilus London fits seamlessly into the duo's most recent album, Folila. Nairobi trio Just a Band is a full-service electro-afropop outfit themselves, with videos as slick as their sound.
