Mamman Sani Abdullaye is a legendary name amongst Niger’s avant garde. A pioneer of early West African electronic music. Mamman’s composes in technique that can only be called minimal, relying on the simplicity and space. It is a remarkable manipulation of sound that uses the silence to invoke the emptiness – a metaphoric desert soundscape. Unsurprisingly, his source material is folkloric Nigerien music, and many of the compositions on this record are reproductions of ancient songs brought into the modern age.
