An Evening With Sahel Sounds says
Doors 8 pm / $7

This is a very special event that has just come together at the last minute. Both Christopher Kirkley and Karen Antunes, who run the record labels Sahel Sounds and Songs from Home, will be in town, showing film clips, music videos, and collected footage from travels throughout West Africa (including a sneak peek at the new film: "Zerzura: the Saharan Acid Western").

Their releases span the celebrated Tuareg guitarists Mdou Moctar and "Les Filles de Illighadad," the "Music from Saharan Cellphones" series, the master of meditative synth music, Mammane Sanni Abdoulaye, and the Moctar-starring feature film 'Akounak Tedalat Taha Tazoughai' (a Tuareg "answer" to 'Purple Rain'). Antunes ran the Mississippi Records' cassette label for years, and is a genius.
