It’s dark. Black as pitch. Your eyes are wide open but you see nothing. Sydney Town Hall is plunged into total darkness for an all-senses experience with Malian superstars Amadou & Mariam.
The Grammy Award-nominated duo met at the Bamako Institute for the Young Blind in the 70s and have been creating inspired blues-infused Afro-pop ever since. Eclipse serves as a testament to the pair’s long and much celebrated career, which has seen collaborations with the likes of Manu Chao, Santigold, Damon Albarn and Nick Zinner.
For their Sydney Festival performances the husband and wife team tell the story of their life and work together mixing in songs spanning their illustrious back catalogue.
Amadou & Mariam are performing as a duo at The Lennox.
