Spaced out autotune from Niger. Tuareg guitar accompanied with loping drum machines and vocal plugins, 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.

You don't even need to read the info to know they are singing of peace and love energy. this is such pure music -- not in a fetishization of ethnic music kinda way. it's so clear that this all resonates from a heart center. the recordings are raw and encapsulate sitting literally anywhere except a recording studio making music. love this to pieces. sumptuous
