until Roskilde Festival 2014 - 29 June to 6 July


Sunday 08.07.12 - 19:30 - Orange

In the light of their numerous appearances at Roskilde Festival, we are proud to call Amadou & Mariam – Africa's musical First Couple – true regulars.

Africa, or Mali to be precise, has never sounded as accessible as it does with these blind veterans. The pair unites funk, rock, tribal song and pop in a musical mixture, which is both melodious by Western standards and full of African flavour.

Santigold, TV On The Radio and several other Western VIP's feature on the duo's latest record Folila. A fine example of the blurring of borders in music, which has become a trademark for the duo as well as Roskilde Festival.

Label: Because Music / Warner­

The First Couple of African music.
Band schedule is ready in May

Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.

We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
