Sabali by Amadou & Mariam

    The great thing about music, is that it's universal; a great song is a great song no matter what language, or where in the world it came from. This duo, "Amadou & Mariam" is originally from Mali, and does most of their recording in the Ivory Coast. It's got some haunting vocals right in the beginning of the song (after the annoying phone conversation in the beginning), which you may recognize from a Miike Snow remix of this song, but that really set the tone for the whole song. There's alot of cool synth work throughout, and it picks up the tempo as it goes along, in a very pleasing way. I'm not going to give this one a moistness level, because, well they're from Mali and I don't want to make a douchey joke about their water quality. I'm not tryna go to hell over a blog post, forgive me.
