This episode of Island Time brings us back to the beautiful Sahel, traveling predominantly through Niger, with stops in Mali and Burkina Faso. The selection focuses around contemporary Islamic Hausa grooves, with some Afrobeats, Wodaabi guitar music and other regional influences floating through. Please note the sound quality on this mix is particularly lo-fi, as these were selections culled from the internet, not ripped from vinyl as in many past mixes.
Image featured is from a music video of African Islamic musician Zainab Ambato. Her song is featured second to last in this mix around the 52 minute mark.
