From: Agadez, Niger
Recommended tracks: Tar Hani, Kammour Taliat, and Tenere
Well-crafted afrobeat that channels rock steady, and early American soul and blues. Agadez showcases a musician who knows how make their instrument speak. A powerful album for any music appreciator. Makes me feel pretty revolutionary.
Really, nothing I have to say is more interesting than the story of this artist and the album.
