“Part living history, part concert, all uplifting” —The Washington Post While they may appear worlds apart, Mali’s Amadou & Mariam?and the Blind Boys?of Alabama share something that is?undeniable: deeply felt music of the soul that?transcends?cultures, nations and musical styles.?For over 40 years, Amadou & Mariam have combined their personal love story with a global music career. As revered ambassadors for Malian and African music, their sound is heartwarming, featuring syncopated rhythms topped with lyrical melodies. Five-time Grammy award winners the Blind Boys?of Alabama are recognized worldwide as living legends of gospel music.?These?Gospel Music Hall of Fame inductees are known for crossing musical boundaries with their remarkable interpretations of everything from traditional gospel to?music crafted by?contemporary songwriters. It takes nearly a day to fly from Birmingham to Bamako, but these two distinct musical worlds are coming together on a single stage with FirstWorks! TICKETS: $49-69 (includes $4 Vets restoration fee) Funded in part by the New England States Touring program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program and the six New England state arts agencies.
