Mammane Sani et son Orgue – La Musique Electronique du Niger
It’s Saturday & time for our weird-saturday-bandcamp-findings!
Today we feature a rare LP [well, what is rare in the digital age?] by the Nigerian legendary musician – Mammane Sani Abdullaye.
“His first and only album was recorded in 1978. Mammane stepped into the studio of the National Radio with his organ, where it was transposed and overdubbed in two takes. In coordination with the Minister of Culture, the album was released in a limited series of cassettes showcasing modern Niger music. The cassette project unfortunately did not progress as planned, and merely a handful were released. Today his cassettes are rare objects, highly sought by fine art connoisseurs and experimental music collectors in Niamey.”
Huge thanks to Yaad Van-Leeven for recommending this album – Enjoy!
