Hassaniya Music From The Western Sahara And Mauritania

SUBLIME FREQUENCIES

Sahrawi music, haunting and hypnotic — from poetry sung over traditional instruments to electrifying grooves drenched in reverb and phase effects. Doueh, tidinit, field recordings from Nouakchott market...



Group Doueh Treeg Salaam
'Compiled from Group Doueh’s personal archives, these five tracks (note sidelong piece on the flip), are as brain shifting in their ecstatic brilliance as any music ever heard.'

Group Doueh Beatte Harab
A cosmic take on Saharoui roots: traditional Moorish instruments like the three-string tinidit lute, ardin harp, clay tbal drum, and tea glasses, together with guitar and Korg synth, and Halima's exalted singing.



Group Doueh Zayna Jumma
Searing, electrifying blues-rock-Saharan-trance, recorded in Dakhla, West Sahara in 2010, this is great.



Kassidat Raw 45s From Morocco
Six double-shots of rough, rollicking, hypnotic Berber music from the 1960s, the Golden Age of the Moroccan record industry. With a handsome full-colour insert including notes by the Luk Thung compiler.



Mdou Moctar Afelan
Tuareg rock by the cellphones hit-maker, recorded on location in Niger: a blend of electrifying, distorted guitar and the sweet melodies of Saharan folk. Anguished sob-stories, plus a few classics.




Pheno S. Kani
Homemade, electronic, Sahel hip-hop. The Saharan Cellphones wonder, branching out: spaced-out, anthemic compounds of autotuned raps, pitch-bending soft synths and glitchy beats.



Omar Souleyman Highway To Hassake: Folk And Pop Sounds Of Syria
Drawn from the hundreds of Souleyman cassettes released since 1994, this is Dabke — delirious, invigorating party music, churning every Arabic style into rough and ready electronics and drums.

Omar Souleyman Leh Jani
The original Leh Jani cassette, with the title track unfurling its full thirty-minute splendour, alongside two more extended sizzlers. Mouth-watering new label from Sublime Frequencies' Mark Gergis.




Waking Up Scheherazade Vol 2
Rough and terrific sixties and seventies rock shit from North Africa and the Middle East, on beautifully coloured vinyl, attractively sleeved.
