Stuart Edwards More incredible stuff from Sahel Sounds. Inor In Tadalat sounds like Neu transported to the Sahara. Amazing.
Favorite track: Inor In Tadalat.

Ojai Ojai Astoundingly beautiful record - deeply melodic and transportive. I'm so glad I found this! Thank you Abba Gargando. Tarha Lamon Ines is a lesson in simplicity. It consists of ONE CHORD. Just one chord and an almost trance-like melodic line. Genius. Favorite track: Tarha Lamon Ines.

Glyn Griffiths Love this guitarist. Would love to know what is creating the hypnotic one chord drone in the background of Tarha Lamon Ines. Almost sounds sampled. Favorite track: Tarha Lamon Ines.
