Catalog no.: SS0000049

Item ID: 473508

Nigerian composer Hama presents a groundbreaking album of traditional electronic desert folk songs, hovering somewhere between early '90s techno and synthwave. Nomadic herding ballads, ancient caravan songs, and ceremonial wedding chants are all re-imagined into pieces seemingly lifted from a Saharan 1980s sci-fi soundtrack or score to a Tuareg video game. With a deep love and respect, Hama effortlessly takes back and re-appropriates fourth-world ethnoambient music.

Also available: HOUMEISSA (CD).
