Mdou Moctar, ‘Afrique Victime’

With this new album, prodigious Tuareg guitarist and songwriter rips a new hole in the sky- boldly reforging contemporary saharan music and “rock music” by melding guitar pyrotechnics, full-blast noise, and field recordings with poetic meditations on love, religion, women’s rights, inequality, and western Africa’s exploitation at the hands of colonial powers.
