CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Paste

Each contributor’s approach is respectful and professional as they obviously sought to fit into the duo’s fully formed musical concepts rather than to try and shape the proceedings to reflect their own musical visions.

Spin

A hybrid that could have sounded neither here nor there instead accentuates the duo's genuinely international range.

Pitchfork

Folila is still a highly successful merger of the Malian duo's vision with the input of collaborators.

These grandparents can still knock out an irresistible groove to match the best, but perhaps they need to be reminded that they should do it alone a little more often.

Drowned in Sound

If you are willing to be patient it offers more surprises than you’d expect, flourishing on repeated plays.

PopMatters

Tthe album works brilliantly far more often than not.
