Welcome to Mali

Today in World Film class, we watched Yeelen, a Malian film directed by Souleymane Cissé. My professor brought in an album by "the blind couple from Mali," Amadou & Mariam, for us to listen to before class started. My professor, Phil, and I talk about music from time to time and we've exchanged a few albums. He let me borrow A&M's Dimanche à Bamako and a few hours later, I got a hold of their new album, Welcome to Mali, and made him a copy.
