about

Electrified sessions of takamba, the ghostly drone from Northern Mali. Staccato calabash percussion carry shredding traditional guitar. Improvised praise for Yehia the holy man by masters Super Onze, recorded in the early 90s. Distortion and fuzz from pickups and tape hiss reveal the soundscape of the Northern dusty villages - where takamba blares from radios, boomboxes, and old cassette tapes.
