From Menaka in Mali, on the edge of the Sahara Desert, comes the almost appropriately named Leila Gobi. The first track comes from her 2015 album, "Leila", and the second from "2017" - no idea when that came out, I'm afraid. Judging by all the squelchy noises it sounds like she started hanging out with the cool kids in Bamako between the two records, but there is no harm in that.
"Hari Nafa" - Leila Gobi
"Tibo Gadeina" - Leila Gobi
Here's some more distaff desert music.
