We're very glad to announce that Mammane Sani, a legendary name amongst Niger's avant garde, will visit Barcelona in his first European tour ever. The show will be at Heliogàbal on December 10th.
Mammane is a pioneer of early West African electronic music and for over 30 years his instrumentals have filled the airwaves. He is well known in Niger but his sole album - La Musique Électronique du Niger - has laid dormant until it was revived for the world by Sahel Sounds / Mississippi Records. Now these gentle rolls and sways of electric organ tones, transcribing traditional Wodaabe and Tuareg melodies as well as original expressions, once again roll into life and we couldn’t be happier.
