live from nouakchott

A recording from a practice session of an upcoming concert here in Nouakchott. I’m playing some sparse guitar accompaniment with two musicians from Senegal, Sidi Baba and Khadim, who sing and play the Djembe respectively.


Omar’s shop in Cinquieme, the kids are playing some game, singing a song.


Salif plays a production he’s made on his computer, a fusion of hip hop and traditional Pulaar folk guitar.


Outside Sekou’s studio, a Baye Fall group, followers of one of the Senegal brotherhoods pass by, drumming, collecting alms.
