Music from Saharan cell phones vol 2

Music from Saharan cell phones vol 2

A friend sent me a link to this incredible free download. It’s not actually sounds from mobile phones but is a collection of raw, incredible, bluesy African music. Music from Saharan cell phones Vol 2 is from Mauritania and the music is collectively referred to as Jagwa east of Shinqit. All the mp3s were collected in the town of Kidal.
Sahelsounds say:
Some of the track titles are lost to the id3 dustbin of history, but the tracklist is best replicated here, with a few creative flourishes:

    Side A:

  1. Mdou – Niger
  2. Mouma Bob – Imidi
  3. Amanar – Alghafait
  4. Fenomenal – Mix
  5. Polisario
  6. Jagwa

Side B:

  1. Pekele – Decale
  2. علي سيدح عبدي فون
  3. Yalah
  4. Lalal-Kanaye – Soul Tamasheq
  5. Mauritanie
  6. Nouakchott 48 hours
  7. Bayta – Aicha
