Portland, Oregon-based record label Sahelsounds continue to explore the cultural and musical phenomena of the Sahel region of West Africa. Their latest release traverses the early electronic music in the Sahara from the singular Mamman Sani Abdoulaye. Dreamy organs and droning melodies reinterpret ancient folk tradition into sublime amazing soundscapes. Never before released recordings from the beginning – unreleased tracks from his first album, recordings of a short-lived trio, and a cover of an American folk ballad. Grab yourself a digital dose of Abdoulaye here and purchase the vinyl LP here.
