Who is Mammane Sani Abdullaye? The name may not be familiar to many of us in the West, but is legendary to Niger's avant-garde music scene. As a pioneer of early West African electronic music, Mammane Sani's created music that filled the African airwaves as background drones to TV news, radio broadcasts, and more. Through minimalist organ playing techniques, Sani creates a spacious sound that tranforms ancient Nigerian melodies into something totally unique. The soundscape is like a cross between Mulatu and Onyeabor heard through a hazy dream filter- nothing short of brilliant. La Musique Electronique Du Niger was recorded in 1978 and is Sani's first and only album. Do not miss this rare opportunity to own it on vinyl. Recommended.
