What keeps the Stern Grove Festival — the annual free summer concert series at the Sigmund Stern Grove amphitheater, celebrating its 80th anniversary this year — a valued spotlight for live music is its vigilance in programming not only big-name, beloved performers (such as season opener Kool & the Gang) but also introducing lesser-known musical gems.The duo is a blind couple from Mali who have, since forming in the 1970s, brought their blend of Afro blues to stages around the world, from Coachella to Glastonbury.Continuing with the African music sound, Amadou & Mariam are preceded by a performance from Ibibio Sound Machine, who combine London electronic music with Nigerian funk and pop sounds.
