Bonnaroo Music Festival

Andrew Jorgensen

This year’s Bonnaroo Music festival in Manchester, TN will feature the Grammy Award nominated Malian duo Amadou & Mariam and French electronic DJ CloZee.

Vocalist Mariam Doumbia and guitarist Amadou Bagayoko met over 30 years ago at the Institute for Young Blind People in Bamako, Mali and have been performing as a duo ever since. They have performed at festivals such as Lallapalooza, Cochella and Glastonbury. Their latest album, La Confusion, combines elements of traditional West-African music, blues, pop and electronic beats to create highly danceable tracks such as “Boufou Safou” and “C’est Chaud.”

French electronic music sensation Clozee hails from the southern city of Toulouse. Her music mixes electronic beats with those of a wide variety of live instruments, from classical guitar to pan flutes. She tours widely in the US and Canada and recently performed at Cochella.
