We had our first visitor from Niger today so, as a tribute of sorts, here are a small selection of tunes from Nigerien artists - mostly but not exclusively in the 'Tuareg Blues' style. I think we now have Chad pretty much surrounded, but the buggers are still holding out.
"Ile Elan" - Atri N'Assouf
"Liedernan" - Etran Finatawa
"Innulamane" - Toumast
"Yacouba" - Mamar Kassey
Speaking of Mama Cass, I still believe her finest achievement was her performance as Witch Hazel in H R Pufnstuf.
