Amadou and Miriam

Another band I have been listening to an awful lot lately is Amadou and Miriam and their album Dimanche a Bamako. Amadou and Miriam are a married couple from Mali that are both blind. They are very popular across Africa and Europe and their music, like Nomo, is also Afrobeat but it has been more accurately been described as Memphis guitars combined with African singing. Checkout the songs La Realite and Senegal Fast Food on Myspace and you will end up buying the whole album.
