  1. Your website, comments and tunes on it are awsome.
    I feel like i was there by reading your text while listening to the music.
    You should maybe add a function to allow visitor to share this on social network if of course there no copyright/label or whatever they call it.
    Keep going on man.

  2. let me try and figure out how to do that…

  3. hi there
    thanks for sharing all this wonderful stuff! actually your focus on Niger boosted me again to dig up some film footage i made in Niamey in june 2008. if you could find out more about these guys, that would be awesome…

  4. dope! i’ll def. look ’em up when I get to Niamey.

  5. actually after close listening, the rhythm of the song from my clip sounds similar to morib’s track kabablon on your cellphone comp vol 1… a kind of sped up percussive variation of coupé décalé.
