about

Unlike the other mixtape volumes, Vol. 7 consists only of recordings made in the county of Niger. This volume includes tapes from across the entire country. You'll hear wedding performances by Mdou Moctar and band in the many small villages between the capital city of Niamey and Agadez, home to guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane and drummer Souleymane Ibrahim. Dispersed throughout the mixtape are field recordings from the animal markets and the shops of the villages, long bus rides, and tea hangs out in the bush. These recordings showcase more of the songwriting process (initially presented in Vol. 3) as we experiment with new ideas at weddings and as we sip tea for hours, blasting guitars through tiny Roland cube amps. As we wind down from the Mdou Moctar mixtape series in 2020, Vol. 7 is an essential artifact capturing where this music comes. Enjoy! - Mikey
