These two cuts rollick along with that complicated melismatic twang found in many parts of the Sahel.

Nagana” pairs sublimely stuttered, kora-informed electric guitar phrases with an electro-tastic percussion effect set on autopilot throughout.

Hone Soida” kicks it more straightforward, though by no means dull. Check out the iimplausibly-behind-the-beat flow of the backing rhythm and the vintage guitar tone.

This is Soul music.


Nagana” & “Hone Soida” from the album, Sounké Vol. 1
