heavy rotation :: Seydou Balani - 'Teguereni'
I recently stumbled across this gem of a blog bringing the best and most Awesome Tapes from Africa. The sites library of downloadable A/B sides come from some of the most niche sections of the world and of the African terrain. I, at random listened to the incredible tribal xylophonist, Seydou Balani. He's named after his instrument the Seydou Koita, which is pretty cool. Just as cool as his tape, Teguereni, download the whole thing here and listen to the glorious title track...

Here's another awesome track I came across on ATFA. This one is from the Middle Atlas region of Morocco by Berber singer, Hadda Ouakki. Download the whole tape here. You cannot go wrong with this first track...
