Description
This husband-and-wife duo from Mali have crafted a fusion project par excellence in Folila (which means "music" in the Bambara language). It is at once a crossover, guest artist–laden album made in New York and a twin project recorded in their home city of Bamako, with African musicians like Toumani Diabaté on djembé drum, the marimba-like balafon, and the plucked kora.

"The result is richly textured: A harmonica snuggles up to the kora in 'Oh Amadou,' Amadou's sparkling guitar grounds Shears' high-flying vocals to the disco thump of 'Metamya,' funky brass fills out the contours of the anthemic 'Africa, Mon Afrique,' and a bass clarinet provides a brilliant textural presence in 'Mogo.'… Folila is at its very best when it relaxes into joyous West African grooves in tunes like 'Baro' and 'Mogo,' as well as the sweet love song 'Sans Toi' and 'Chérie,' a lilting paean to family."—NPR's First Listen
