Sahel Sounds: “exploration of sound and music in west africa, particularly in the sahel region of mauritania, mali, and niger”
Sahel Sounds is the project of Christopher Kirkley, gentleman explorer/music archivist/artist/curator/and occasional dj. His work examines contemporary popular musics in an evolving technological landscape from the interplay of localized traditions with transglobal influences to new media models of cultural transmission.
Sahel Sounds began as a blog in 2009 to share field recordings and has evolved into a record label. The blog continues as a documentation of recordings, as well as a platform to explore arts and music of the region through nontraditional ethnographic fieldwork.
