This past weekend I was in a taxi whipping around Paris at dusk with two strong, beautiful girl friends. We’d met there for a whirlwind trip; one training in from London, the other from Prague and me coming in from Amsterdam. We dined, saw the sights, pondered life, growth, death and love over endless glasses of wine and absorbed every moving moment together under the Eiffel Tower.
During that taxi ride, Amadou & Mariam graced the airwaves and the three of us, including our drive, paused in our conversation and just witnessed the city speed past us at that moment in time.
Moments like that are always cemented into my brain and memory and forever attached to the music playing at the time. Amadou & Mariam & Paris and Friends.
They’ve got an unusual and interesting story: blind lovers making music and now working with huge artists. Neat stuff – find them on Facebook here.
