Mdou Moctar meets Elite Beat in a Budget Dancehall!

Mdou Moctar meets Elite Beat in a Budget Dancehall
Digital / Bandcamp Only
BIG SOUNDS HERE>>> 3 gems from our sessions last spring with Tuareg guitarist Mdou Moctar and our house band Elite Beat!
Recorded in the spring of 2017 over 3 evenings in Portland, Oregon. These raw, unedited, live recordings were fueled by laughter, and Azawad gunpowder tea. Live music. The Universal language.

Long form improvised jams, full of Saharan psychedelic guitar journeys, hypnotic rhythm and dub possibilities.

Big thanks to Sahel Sounds for making this cosmic link up a possibility.

Mdou Moctar is on US tour this spring, GO check him and his band in a city near you!!

“Lokal Affair’s debut EP, Seremunia, contains the soothing everythingness of daytime city noise, and the echoes of the blacklight nighttime stars blotted out by the rising sun during the walk home from the club. He talks about chakras and is inspired by life in the desert (something I know absolutely nothing about), and he channels this into his mesmerizing flurry of beats, shakes, shivers, tablas, voices, and quakes. ”
