Welcome to the Desert Kingdom.

in cinquieme, i usually wake to this prayer call from the mosque next door. it’s in soninke, one of the small languages spoken in the region, and is one of the first prayer calls i’ve heard with a woman’s voice. sometimes is goes on for fifteen minutes or so, but it’s soft and nice to wake to, even at four in the morning.

    Hi Chris,
    Do you still have the female muezzin mp3?
    I heard of her while in Nouakchott but never heard her.
