One of the first full-length recordings of Hauka ritual music.
The Hauka movement started nearly a century ago and has persisted on the fringes of Nigerien society. Documented in the 1955 Jean Rouch film 'Les Maitres Fous', the Hauka are a pantheon on spirits mirrored on colonial and military figures.
Lingo Seini has played this ritual music for almost 60 years, learning it from his father. He is joined by his son Youssouf on the calabass and Issaka Moulla, playing his homemade kuntigi.
