TinariwenRadio Tisda Sessions ... LP
World Village/Modern Classics, 2002. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 27.98
Key musical figures in the Touareg independence movement – and a very hip group of nomads working with a lot of guitars! There's a laidback pulse to the music that might run counter to their political presence, but the music has a very hypnotic feel that pulls you in slowly, then doesn't let go – lots of interplay between the guitar lines, which are interwoven with vocals, and mixed with just a bit of percussion. Haunting stuff throughout – with tracks that include "Bismillah", "Mataraden Anexan", "Afours Afours", "Nar Djenetbouba", "Tessalit", and "Le Chant Des Fauves". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great vinyl pressing – 2LPs, and very heavy!)

✨✧ VariousMusic From Saharan Cellphones ... LP
Sahel Sounds, 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great set of music that's literally as its title indicates – compiled from the memory cards from cell phone users in the Saharan Desert – not only a fascinating selection of modern West African music, but a bit of a time capsule of modern "connected" musical culture of the region! It's actual songs, not some collection of ring tones or phone sound errata – with songs by Group Anmataff, Yeli Fuzzo, Amanar, Mdou Moctar, Bayta Ag Bay and others – many with a sound informed by the modernity that goes along with the cell phone era – home studio recordings, synths, loops, etc. It's music that is listened to, and passed along, via modern telecommunications – possibly the primary means of distribution for some of it! Includes "Tinariwen" by Group Anmataff, "Abande" by Yeli Fuzzo, "Tahoultine" by Mdou Moctar, "Faroter" by Joskar Et Flamzy, "Aicha" by Bayta Ag Bay, "Guetna" by Negib Ould Ngainich and more.

✨✧ VariousDr Delay – Rajaz Meter ... CD
Funk Weapons, Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Middle Eastern funk at its finest – a great bunch of grooves recorded in a geographic stretch that runs from Egypt to Turkey, and also includes a few sweet bits from even farther afield! The style here is a mix of conventional funk, Eastern instrumentation, and lots of other exotic touches – all interpolated into a great groove that perfectly balances the occident and the orient – all in search of the most enigmatic rhythms possible! The package is a bit like a mix set – somewhat like some of the Brazilian funk collections floating around a few years back – and it features 31 titles that include "Always In My Heart" by Elias Rahbani, "Mehmet Emmi" by Edip Akbayram, "Crazy Heart" by Vinguen, "Yeter Artik Kadin" by Bunalimar, "Halicte Gunesin Batisi" by Les Mogol, "We Love You" by Guy Pedersen, "Azaar" by Orient Express, "Yagmur" by Erkin Koray, "Chatma" by Tinariwen, and "Misirlou" by The Devil's Anvil.
