Hama
Houmeissa
LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Sahel Sounds)
20,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Nigerian composer Hama presents a groundbreaking album of traditional electronic desert folk songs, hovering somewhere between early 90s techno and synthwave. Nomadic herding ballads, ancient caravan songs, and ceremonial wedding chants are all re-imagined intopieces seemingly lifted from a Saharan 1980s sci-fi soundtrack or score to a Tuareg video game. With a deep love and respect, Hama effortlessly takes back and re-appropriates fourth-world ethnoambient music.

LP | 2018 | US | Original (Sahel Sounds)

Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Tallawit Timbouctou are champions of takamba, a hypnotic traditional music fromNorthern Mali. Built around the tehardent, the four stringed lute and pre-cursor tothe American banjo, takamba's droning distortion comes from signature handmademics and blown out amplifiers. Accompanied by percussion pounded out onto anoverturned calabash with mind boggling time signatures, the combined effect istrance inducing. This is the music that long ruled the North of Mali, performed atfestivities, blasting out of dusty boomboxes, and beaming out from village radiostations. Its origin is shrouded in mystery, and though purportedly dating back to theSonghai Empire of the 15th century, takamba's heyday was in the 1980s, with theintroduction of amplification. Musicians found a lucrative circuit, performing inelegant weddings, creating cassettes on demand, and writing songs for their wealthypatrons. Today takamba has fallen out of popular fashion with the youth, butcontinues to thrive in a small network of die-hard traditionalists. Band leader AghalyAg Amoumine is one of the remaining renowned takamba musicians. Descendedfrom a long line of praise singers, he spent decades traveling across the Sahel,performing in remote nomad camps and crowded West African capitals. Hiscompositions continue to circulate today and have become part of the folkrepertoire. His group Tallawit Timbouctou, based in the city of the same name,continues in the family tradition, and has featured both his brother and nephew asaccompanying members. Recorded at home in Timbouctou, "Hali Diallo" is arelentless and nonstop recording, true to the form of takamba. Tracks blendseamlessly into one another, instruments are tuned mid-song, and Aghaly onlypauses singing long enough for the occasional shout-out or dedication. Unfilteredand direct as it's meant to be heard, Tallawit Timbouctou is a shining example of oneof the last great takamba bands.

Troupe Ecole Tudu
Oyiwane
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Sahel Sounds)
20,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Sweet and sublime school recordings from elementary school group in Northern Niger fromthe 1980s. All-girl group accompanied by their instructor on the acoustic guitar, recallingGuinean folk and early Ali Farka Touré. Troupe École Tudu takes their name from a smallneighborhood of Agadez, Niger. In 1985, the city hosted a musical competition between variousschools. École Tudu, lacking a choir, sought out a young Tuareg guitarist Kader "Barmo" Balla tocreate a new style of music. The guitar was new to Niger and Barmo was new to the guitar,having only played for a few years. His notes were minimal and stripped down melodiesmirroring the vocals, a technique common in Malian and Guinean folk music. To makesomething uniquely Saharan, they modeled their percussion on the tende, the traditional Tuareggoatskin drum and rhythm. Their debut composition titled "Oyiwane" ("Greetings to Everyone") won first prize at the competition and garnered the attention of the Niger state. The following year they were invited into the studio to record an album, released on the small boutique label Hasada (known for their seminal work with Mamman Sani Abdoulaye). The compositions mixed traditional folksongs with original creations, but the lyrical content was political. At a time of massive rural migration, drought, and exodus, their songs were a message to the modern nomads, emphasizing traditional culture while stressing the importance of education, particularly for young women. The group continued to win accolades for their music throughout Niger. Following their success, a number of other school groups created similar guitar/vocal folklore groups. This style of music became popular throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s and led to the creation of the today's female music troupes of Niger. Restored and remastered for the first time outside of Niger, Troupe École Tudu's Oyiwane is available on a limited vinyl pressing of 500, accompanied with liner notes and song translations from Kader "Barmo" Balla.

Archival recordings from Niger's seminal psych-rock outfit Azna De L'Ader, featuring intensely shrieking solos, fuzzed out guitars and hypnotic crashing drums.

Playing their homecountry for over 40 years, but living in a remote region, this is the first ever official release of Azna De L'Ader's music. Band-leader Mona is something of a legend. In 1970 he formed his first group, The Crocodiles, followed by what today stands as one of the oldest orchestras in Niger: Azna De L'Ader. Known for its furious, Hendrix inspired psychedelic rock, Azna De L'Ader is a legendary group that everyone in Niger knows about, and no one outside of the country has ever heard of.
