We’ve got a beautifully put together collection of field recordings of guitar music from the Western Sahel here from the wonderful folks at Mississippi Records, accompanied by a beautiful 12-page A4 newsprint booklet full of colour photos and some background information on the artists and music featured on this LP.
The only name here that’s familiar to me is Alkibar Gignor, who had a superb LP of their own out on Mississippi earlier this year which I actually bought for myself. Besides them we’ve got contributions from the likes of Le Dental Orchestra and a fascinating character who calls himself Le Marchand Du Soleil. All the playing is really accomplished and often quite fiddly, the singing when it happens is warm and likeable and the whole album has a hazy, summery feel about it which is really cheering me up on this freezing late November day in Holbeck.The album closes with a super chill cover of the Police’s ‘Message In A Bottle’ which is angering Li’l Biz a little but I think it’s cheeky and fun. Another sweet compilation then, great job Mississippi!
