Tartit With Imharhan
Live From The Sahara

CLERMONT

Tartit means union: the message is Change. Electric guitars and traditional instruments like the stringed tehardent and not commonly combined, usually reserved for women tinde drums and imzad violin.



Hassaniya Music From The Western Sahara And Mauritania
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...



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.









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



Mustapha Skandrani Istikhbars And Improvisations
Improvisatory solo piano from 1965 a trans-Mediterranean crossover based on traditional Algerian vocal pieces, with roots in Spanish Islamic culture. Hotly recommended.



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.



Group Inerane Guitars From Agadez Vol. 3
'Saharan trance stun guitar... a hypnotic choogle that rivals both the Magic Band's early 70s marathon workouts and the Velvet Underground's drone on tracks like Sister Ray.'
