AMOUMINE, ALI AG - TAKAMBA (LP & 7")


"Hypnotic recording session with griot "Ali" Ag Amoumine at his home in Timbouctou. Playing the distinctive style of Northern Mali and Niger known as Takamba -- droning electrified traditional guitar accompanied by a haunting rhythm tapped on a calabash -- Ali navigates a repertoire drawing on music learned on his travels and his own compositions. Comes with a bonus 7" of acoustic performances. Co-release with Sahel Sounds." (label info)
