Reviewed 2002-11-26 
From Niger. Led by Yacouba Moumouni, a 9-piece band playing both traditional instruments and modern. Great vocals, strong melodies: at times bluesy – at times swinging -- a lot of Africa – a bit of the middle east. It all sounds rather alike after a while, though. Mamar Kassey, by the way, was a famous 16th century warrior.

*1. Upbeat w/a big bass/vocal sound.
2. Strong string/percussion solo mid-song. Uptemo, big vox.
3. Female chorus, strings/drums, vox. Bouncy.
*4. Slower, cool blend of traditional instruments/vox.
5. Upbeat w/bass/strings/vox.
6. Swaying, bass/string/vox.
7. Arabic-influenced solo chant intro. Flute/strings/drum. Slower.
8. Blend of sounds (drums/strings) into mid-tempo tune w/vox.
*9. Soaring vox, mid-tempo chorus/strings.
*10. Strings/perc/big voice. Bright.
*11. Bass/flute/strings bluesy/jazzy instrumental.
