The wonderful and excellent Sahel Sounds reissue La Musique Électronique du Niger, a 1981 set from Nigerien artist Mammane Sani. These tracks, laid down in a quickfire session on Niger National Radio’s rickety old organ, have become a crucial part in the country’s musical story by the broadcaster subsequently using them as theme music for their shows. Now remastered from the original tapes, these droning compositions make a lot of sense alongside Sahel Sounds’ recent Hama album.
