Amadou and Mariam are so freakin' badass. Not because they're blind and not just because they make funky music, but because they make their music to stand up against Islamist rebels who are trying to ban music in parts of Mali. I love how they just seem to be like, "Sure, Islamist rebels, good luck with that. We'll just be right over here making our Grammy-nominated music."
Check out their KickStarter and help fund a documentary to spread this musical protest throughout Mali and the world.
