El WaliTiris ... CD
Sahel Sounds, 1994. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
A fantastic album from a West Saharan group dedicated to political independence of the Sahrawi people, but who also work with a great blend of older acoustic styles and a few contemporary electric elements! The music has maybe a touch of Tuareg guitar in the mix, but there's also some powerful vocals, earthy percussion, and some lighter electric touches from time to time – the last of which are never overdone or over-polished, so that the voices and percussion shine through in a beautiful way! Things get a bit funky at points, but the music is maybe best when it's more evocative, and has a heartfelt political power – on titles that include "The Day Of The Free Nation", "Sing For The Nation Day", "Long Love The Sahrawi Army", "20 Of May", "Let Me Know Our Past", "I Sing For The Country", "Song For The Prophet", and "Brave People". CD
Also available Tiris ... LP 18.99

HamaHoumeissa ... LP
Sahel Sounds, 2019. New Copy ... $19.99
One of the coolest records we've heard on the Sahel Sound label to date – not the usual guitar material you might know from the imprint, but instead a batch of very cosmic keyboards – all instrumental, and spinning out into space with a vibe that's almost a collision between the best electronic styles of the 70s and 80s! There's almost more echoes here of the German Sky Records scene than you'd expect from the usual southern hemisphere sounds of Sahel – and Hama Moussa keeps things spare, but very melodic throughout – yet always without resorting to easier boogie keyboard modes, or some of the other retro-heavy styles that are more common of late. Titles include "Terroir", "Houmeissa", "Dounia", "Touareg", "Yeta Yeta", "Takamba", and "Wassa". LP, Vinyl record album

Luka ProductionsFalaw ... CD
Sahel Sounds, 2019. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
Luka Productions is a showcase for the fantastic voice of Luka Guindo – a singer with this raspy charm that grabs you right away and really conveys the power of the tunes – so much so, you hardly need the English translations of the lyrics in the notes! The music is a blend of acoustic and electric modes – some sounds on djembe and ngoni, mixed with occasional rhythm programs handled by Luka – never too over the top, but really well-paced with the older elements – and occasionally augmented by contributions from guest singers too. Titles include "Bbni", "A Tara", "Koduma", "Falaw", "Badjan", "Tolobana", "Damonson", "Dogonodoon", and "Sitanba". CD

Mdou MoctarIlana – The Creator ... CD
Sahel Sounds, 2019. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
An album titled after the creator, and a set that's maybe the most spiritual to date from Tuareg guitar genius Mdou Moctar – a record that comes across with a strong sense of focus right from the start, and which seems to have Mdou's guitar sounding even better than ever! The drums are maybe a bit stronger than on previous records – and maybe a bit more American-inspired too – which pushes the songs forcefully, while Moctar spins out these beautifully hypnotic lines on guitar – at a level that's made him a real global star in recent years. Titles include "Asshet Akal", "Inzigam", "Tarhatazed", "Ilana", and "Tumastin". CD

Abdallah Ag OumbadougouAnou Malane – Poesies Et Chansons De La Resistance Touaregs (with bonus download) ... LP
Sahel Sounds, 1995. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A seminal album in the Tuareg scene – a record that was initially issued on cassette in the mid-90s, and circulated in the underground as a bold statement of freedom and power! Abdallah Ag Oumbadougou has a guitar style that's fantastically complex, but instantly moving – tight lines interwoven with rhythms, and topped with lyrics that are as political as they are poetic – still very moving all these many years later. Titles include "Akokass", "Tenere", "Zagzane Bass Tila", "Ifitalane", "Anou Malane", and "Thingalene". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mammane SaniMammane Sani Et Son Orgue – La Musique Electronique Du Niger ... CD
Sahel Sounds, 1978. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
Amazing sounds from Niger – some really hypnotic lines on electric organ – played in a way that's unlike any other use of the instrument we've ever heard! There's a flowing, water-like quality to the music that's almost in the territory of Terry Riley's work on organ – yet the overall approach is a bit more varied, too, with more shifts throughout the course of each song – creating these melodic pulses that are extremely beautiful, and a bit more tune-like than Riley. The album's hardly what you'd expect from an African album of the 70s – and is one of those completely unique, completely transcendent records that keeps on rewarding the listener for many years. Titles include "Lamru", "Lidda", "Bodo", "Tunan", and "Salamatu". CD
