Featuring indigenous strings and percussion, these sparse yet expansive scores speak of deserts across the African continent, from Southern Africa, the Kalahari and the Namib up to the Saharan sounds of Mali and the West, and across the North to  Egypt.

Specially featuring is hereditary Gambian griot, kora player, and composer Jally Kebba Susso (right; hear him is “Sahara Cirrus Sky” below).
