2 concerts > Niger desert rock to groovy psych-pop from Anatolia + Rebel Up dj support
Thanks to label boss Christopher Kirkley, who can easily be described as the modern day Alan Lomax, Sahel Sounds has also become one of those unmissable benchmarks. To him we owe the discovery of Les Filles De Illigahdad (recently catchy at BRDCST) and the desert blues of Mdou Moctar. On his debut, Mdou Moctar further distinguished himself from other Touareg acts, like Bombino or Tinariwen, by the striking use of the auto-tune. Live, Mdou Moctar mostly sounds raw and extremely energetic. Moctar also provided the music for the very first Touareg film ‘Akounkounak Tedalat Taha Tazoughai’ about a young musician who wants to make it big. Fun Fact: the film was a remake of ‘Purple Rain’. He just has released his new allbum ‘Sousoume Tamachek‘ on Sahel Sounds. Desert power!
