In an interview with Dweezil Zappa, Mdou Moctar cites an Abdallah Oumbadougou concert when he was a child as the moment he knew he needed to play guitar.
"Anou Malane" is gritty, politically charged. The drum programming grooves. The tape warped fidelity gives it an otherworldly energy. I wish I knew this record earlier; it feels like one of those obvious missing links that a Westerner listening to Tuareg music remotely may not be aware of. One of my favorite Sahel Sounds releases so far. Ryan Sarno
