Hama is a multi-instrumentalist and electronic synthesizer composer from the Republic of Niger. His music has enjoyed wide acclaim throughout the country through his underground releases of unlabeled digital recordings on memory cards. Creating at the convergence of disparate influences, such as North African instrumental synth, Tuareg tishumaren, 90s Nigerien Hip Hop and second wave Detroit techno, Hama composes music that is futuristic and rooted in tradition, transmitting Tuareg guitar into the 21st Century.

That Strat. guitar tone. The waves of trance like repetition. I hear Blind Owl from Canned Heat, Jimi Hendrix, Maleem Mahmoud Ghania. Blues and Psychedelic sounds with the North African groove. Timothy Kearns

Great to see the ladies doing it so well in the usually male dominated Tuareg music world. Raw, unpolished soul music from that fascinating area in Africa where East starts to meet West - a lovely life affirming listen TheSlowMusicMovement
