Mammane Sani – La Musique Électronique Du Niger (Mississippi)
Mammane Sani Abdullaye is a legendary name amongst Niger’s avant garde. A pioneer of early West African electronic music, for over 30 years his instrumentals have filled the airwaves. The instrumental background drones of radio broadcasts and instrumental segue ways of TV intermissions borrow heavily from his repertoire. The dreamy organ instrumentals drift by sans comment, yet are known to all.
This is his first album from 1978.
The Cyclist – Bones in Motion (Leaving Records)
