Overview

This lavishly illustrated 3-CD set with 124-page book documents the music of the Saharawis, a nation 20 years in desert exile since Spain ceded western Sahara to Morocco and Mauritania. The set features a disc of Saharawi women singers, another of more modern interpolations, and the third by the protest group Mártir Luali. The combination of dry, desert-blown vocals, hand claps, and guitar lines reminiscent of Ali Farka Touré; give this music a mystical quality. Listening to it seems to stop time, and in that elemental pace, gives reflection on the persistence of a people in the face of odds both political and natural. A ghostly, powerful set.
