about

Laila Je T'Aime is a compilation of guitar music from the Western Sahel - including Mauritania, Senegal and Mali. Selected from three years of field recordings, the compilation highlights guitarists and guitar bands and the vast differences in interpretation of the instrument. Recorded on location from the riverside houses of the Niger to the desert campfires of Northern Malian desert.

Includes a digital download of the booklet of photos and brief bios of the musicians.

A follow up to Ishilan n-Tenere, the record is available on vinyl, a co-release with Portland's Mississippi Records. As per the previous (and all the sahelsounds releases), 60% of the internet sales go back to the musicians with a "pay as you like" option.
