Au début de ce siècle, au coeur de l'Afrique, au Mali, la lumière de Dieu a brillé sur un homme : Tierno Bokar, que l'on appelait le Sage de Bandiagara.
Cheikh de la confrérie soufi Tidjaniya, Tierno Bokar fut une pure et haute figure non seulement de l'Islam en Afrique noire, mais de la spiritualité universelle. Sa vie est retracée d'abord dans ses lieux et dans son contexte politique et religieux pour situer la parole et l'enseignement du Maître, qui font l'objet des deux autres parties de l'ouvrage.

The story of Folila the word means music in Bambara boasts three distinct chapters, and is a tale of how two records became one. Marc-Antoine Moreau, the duo's long-time manager and producer explains: "The original idea was to make two albums: One was going to be a crossover record made in New York City, where Amadou & Mariam have many musical friends and relationships; and the other was to be a more rootsy album recorded in Bamako with mostly African guests and African percussion instead of a drum kit." Both plans came to fruition, but when Amadou & Mariam listened back to the richness of the two sessions, a third way suggested itself: to combine the two recordings in a seamless, organic fashion.

Après "Dimanche à Bamako", Amadou et Mariam reviennent avec Welcome to Mali, un album qui est le fruit de nombreuses collaborations avec des artistes rencontrés lors de leur périple mondial de près de 3 ans. On retrouve à leurs côtés M, Damon Albarn, Keziah Jones, le rappeur canadien d'origine somalienne K'Naan et Juan Rozoff, pour un résultat qui emmène la musique du duo fleurté avec la pop, l'electro, le hip hop sans jamais perdre ses racines maliennes et la fraîcheur qui ont fait leur succès.

Having issued a handful of excellent Afro-rock albums on small independent labels in the last few years, which have attracted attention within the world music community, Amadou and Miriam are poised to break out with Dimanche A Bamako, arguably the best album of a career that goes back 30 years. Produced by mischievous French/Spanish pop star Manu Chao (who even co-wrote and sings on a few tunes), the album fuses the couple's dynamic grooves with the producer's signature everything-and-the-kitchen sink backgrounds. This is truly a collaboration of like-minded individuals: Chao's own rabid multi-culti mix of styles enhances the blind couple's guitar-driven mix of blues-rock and African percussion, as well as Latin, dance and reggae grooves. Highlights include the impossibly catchy Senegal Fast Food and the percolating Coulibaly, while the couple's political bent comes out on Politic Amagni. Truly an album with a global perspective, there is something for everyone here, and rather than diluting the stew, it makes it all the more tasty.

Jean, a farm lad, wants to escape his silent father; he runs to Paris to his older brother, Georges, who's away covering the war in Kosovo. Angry, he throws a bag of half-eaten pastry into a beggar's lap. Amadou, a young Franco-African, berates him. The police arrive, arrest Amadou and deport the beggar. Georges's girlfriend Anne is upset; it colors her relationship with Georges when he returns from the war. Separate lives intersect for the one moment, around the pastry bag, and all are altered. We follow each as repercussions of the incident play out. Deaf children bookend the film pantomiming words, feelings, and situations: what they are expressing?
