ARTIST // various
LABEL // sahelsounds (us)
CAT // sahel012lp


2017 repress. "Contemporary pop music from the Sahara desert, where songs are stored on cellphones. Collected in Northern Mali in 2010 (since taken over by extremists who've banned music on cellphones) the second volume expands into new sonic territory - from dreamy Niger guitar ballads, Bamako club juke, and hi energy Moroccan child Ra - with a focus on the Autotuned DIY creations circulating the desert." Includes insert with liner notes.
