Lost recordings that defined the modern sound of the Sahara.
This album contains the first recordings of modern music from the Sahara and mark the birth of the genre that is known in the West as 'Desert Blues' or 'Desert Rock'. Ahl Nana changed the folk music of the Sahara to modern, cosmopolitan music by using Western instruments like the electric guitar. They paved the way for artists like Ali Farka Touré, Tinariwen, Mdou Moctar or Bombino. Although the group is still active today, they only recorded 2 LPs and a handful of singles. All these recordings took place in 1971 at the Boussiphone studios in Casablanca. The records were never distributed and therefore remained unknown for almost 50 years, until Radio Martiko discovered a batch of unsold factory stock a few years ago. On this album, you will find a selection of these revolutionary recordings.
Double LP in gatefold sleeve with liner notes.
