ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Niger is an extraordinary opus of desert blues featuring Touareg,
Peul and Songhai rhythms that reflect the rich cultural diversity of northern Mali.Bocoum's voice and instrumental sound are less stark and overtly bluesy than his mentor's on this second solo album. In place of Touré's jagged electric guitar lines, acoustic guitars, lute, bass and calabash percussion set up easy-flowing rhythmic patterns over which squeakily plaintive one-string fiddle beautifully complements Bocoum's airily throaty delivery. Bocoum's singing has the kind of unforced earthy sincerity you'd expect from a completely traditional singer who has barely left his home village.
