Have a Listen! Five Songs by Sahel Sounds

Sahel Sounds is an “exploration of sound and music in West Africa, particularly in the Sahel region of Mauritania, Mali, and Niger via filmmaking, field recordings, visual art, mp3 archiving, cellphone data collection, and cross cultural experiments.” The albums on their roster are terrific, so you should seriously consider checking them all out. Also, HOT OF THE PRESS this week is Mdou Moctar’s new album, Sousoume Tamachek.

So good it hurts.
