Wallet Mohamed, Idassane – “Issaawat” – [Sahelsounds]

Issawat are Tuareg songs from Northern Mali that are sung at night in desert camps. Originally released on cassette, the studio where it was recorded has been looted and ruined by Islamic extremists. Female vocalist Idassane Wallet Mohamed’s fluid vocals are spellbinding. They are accompanied by a drone of low voices, drums, and clapping.
