buyse_a The song Friday is great, I can repeat this a thousand times. It's too short! Others like Anar or Hwa Heda are great too! But the whole album is a gem, and having the vinyl is awesome. Favorite track: Friday.

about

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, to hi energy Moroccan child Raï - with a focus on the Autotuned DIY creations circulating the desert.
