about

Spaced out autotune from Niger. Tuareg guitar accompanied with loping drum machines and vocal plug ins, interpreted via the filter of Bollywood influenced Hausa pop. Mdou Moctar’s debut studio recording from 2008, was never officially released but widely distributed via the cellphone file sharing networks of the Sahara. A monumental record sonically, but also as one of the first modern electronic adaptations of Tuareg guitar.
