Release Date:11/13/2015;Notes:First vinyl edition of Malian duo Amadou & Mariam's fourth album, Dimanche à Bamako, originally released in 2005. Double LP on orange vinyl includes CD. Dimanche à Bamako won the BBC Award for World Music Best Album Award 2006 the duo won the African section of the same awards that year. It was also listed as one of Songlines' ten best world music albums of the year and was nominated for a 2006 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary World Music Album. Observer Music Monthly listed it as the 39th best album of the 2000s. "Amadou & Mariam, the blind couple from Mali, have certainly paid their dues over the last 30 years, and it's about time they received their big break. Certainly given the excellent reviews in Europe, Dimanche a Bamako could be it, thanks to the production and participation by the elf prince of world music, Manu Chao. He brings a playful lightness to their soulful, bluesy Malian sound, letting in plenty of sunshine, and drawing in a sense of place through the ambience of traffic sounds and snippets of conversation. Chao is also obviously present on several tracks, such as 'Senegal Fast Food,' which offers a bouncy, reggae-styled rhythm so typical of Chao's own records. ... Lyrically, this is very much an album of love songs, postcards between the couple, but it never veers into maudlin sentiment. Yet there's also a political edge to it, such as with 'La Realite.' Even if you don't understand the words, however, the entire disc is an absolute aural joy, poppy enough to be exquisitely memorable, yet with layers of resonance underneath. Likely to be one of the world music albums of 2005, it can hopefully find the kind of wide audience it surely deserves" --AllMusic.;Track List:1. M'bife 2:11;2. M'bife Balafon 1:59;3.
