Amadou & Mariam Eclipse

Amadou & Mariam's three nights of Eclipse at the Co-operative Group's New Century Hall were conducted in total darkness, but what they lacked in visuals they more than made up for in sounds, smells and absolute exuberance. Eclipse told the story of Amadou & Mariam’s life and work together, featuring songs from across their career

Married for more than 25 years, Amadou and Mariam met in the orchestra of The Institute for the Young blind in Bamako. Since then, their magical fusion of pop, blues and Malian music has won them fans and stellar collaborators around the world.

Commissioned by Manchester International Festival.

Produced by Manchester International Festival, Amadou & Mariam, All Other Music and Because Music.
