Mamman Sani - Unreleased Tapes 1981-1984
Experimentation in early electronic music in the Sahara from the singular Mamman Sani.
Dreamy organs and droning melodies reinterpret ancient folk tradition into sublime fantastical soundscape. Never before released recordings from the very beginning - unreleased tracks from his first album, recordings of a short lived trio, and a cover of an American folk ballad.
“The solo venture is expansive and easy on the ears. It’s so serene yet expressive of big terrain and huge vistas of emotional landscapes of sound. He works off his own scale. Everything flows outwards. Effortlessly” – Irish Times
