Audio: Amadou & Mariam 'A Chacun Son Affaire'

Malian duo Amadou and Mariam A Chacun Son aAfaire classic throwback.

This throwback classic from Malian duo Amadou & Mariam is a staple to the ears of many if not all francophone West African music lovers. "A Chacun Son aAfaire" is a template classic for the kind of music the duo produced in their first 5 cassettes Le Couple Aveugle du Mali Vol. 1 through Vol. 5; pure, bare, guitar and vocals music that is very different from their more modern percussion-infused sound. Those who have, like us, missed their older sound will enjoy this and similar tunes to it from the duo like "Mon Amour."
