    The US needs to start investing in culture. This country is a mixture yet rejects so much of the world. Who can be at home, when they're told to reject anything that isn't controlled through a historical lense of racism and bigotry. We need performances from Asian communities desperately right now too. The violent attacks from Trump supporters is horrific. Every culture that has been looked down on needs platforms like this. Also FREAKING AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! Loved the music not just how incredibly important it is.

    I remember seeing a doc about them at SXSW one year then going to see them perform after. An incredible performance and band. So glad to see them again and especially on an outlet like this where more people can be exposed to them and their music. The documentary is called They Will Have to Kill Us First for anyone who might be interested in checking it out and knowing more about these guys

    It’s amazing what a good band can do with a simple four chord progression and leave one repeating that song over and over and over in your head. I both love and and hate when that happens because I watched this video yesterday and still today a can’t get this song out of my head. Sometimes greatness comes from the most unexpected times and places. I loved the people on the far left who are going about their daily lives in the background. Now I want to know the true meaning of the songs lyrics.... I can’t get it out of my head!

    I had no idea who these guys were and almost passed this up. But from the first moments of music I found myself thumping to this most excellent beat and I am listening to it for the third time on a different video with translation subtitles. Once this pandemic is a thing of memory, get these guys on the show! Now I'm off to explore more of their music.

      @Seth Lockard The color difference shows up less on the white guitar which goes a mauve shade when the orange goes red.

    I like it! It reminds me a bit of Amadou & Miriam, an amazing duo also from Mali.

    • 01 02

      I actually came back! to say THANKS for the recommendation! both the group and duo are new for me and I adore their sounds. my 83 [at the time] year old mom actually made it to the motherland with a group of her friends. and yeah, even though I grew up seeing photos of her on her amazing world travels abroad [long before she was ever married or had us kids], I admit it had me nervous. her with my other elder 'mothers,' traveling *ANYWHERE,* so far away in their super-golden years. but they were just fine, touring around with their larger group and tour guides. anyway, they went there, and before that holiday, South America - and from its west coast [I forgot which port, exactly] they took a cruise to Bali, omg..and I do admire them all so much..and I still have yet to go to any of those places, myself...but the music is what helps..and the *music* from Mali is just so beautiful, incredibly comforting - and can't wait to visit + several other African nations.👍 so, *thank you* so much for introducing me to the beautiful lyrical stylings & compositions of *Amadou & Miriam,* I just💖it and am now a new subscriber of their channel!🌺🙋🏾‍♀️

      @Jeanette Schock my cult? Didnt know I was in one. I just dont like haters like Stephen Colbert. I dont pay attention to anyone else. I use to love him! Until he became obsessed with Trump! I dont like Trumps personality either, but Stephen went way overboard. His hate for Trump went past comedy and he used his show to show it. Disgusting and unnecessary.

      He has to save face with all his hate talk about trump, and over the top mocking rhetoric. I have been looking forward to seeing him tonight. It's ok Stephen dont be embarrassed now, you have been embarrassing yourself for months with your hate obsession of Trump. Just apologize and we can move on
