Compilation record by Sahel Sounds. Contains 11 songs.Below is an explanation by the label.

In 2020, Sahel Sounds held a project called "Music from Saharan WhatsApp".The series consisted of ephemeral digital EPs documenting live performances by some of the Sahel's most exciting artists, including Niger techno, wedding rock, Udabe guitar, WZN, traditional music and Mandingue music.

Musicians were invited by our artist network to record their tracks with their mobile phones and send them via the popular mobile app WhatsApp.Each session was hosted on Bandcamp for a month and sold on a slide basis, with all profits going directly to the musicians. After a month, that EP will disappear and switch to another EP.

And now, some of the label's favorite tracks from the series are being released for the first time as a compilation LP, Music from Saharan WhatsApp.The LP brings together Sahel Sounds big names like Etran de L'Aïr, Hama, Alkibar Jr and Amaria Hamadaler of Les Filles de Illighadad, as well as newcomers to the label like Bounaly and Andal Sukabe.

 Sahel Sounds:

"In 2020, Sahel Sounds hosted a project called Music from Saharan WhatsApp. This series consisted of ephemeral digital EPs, documenting live performances by some of the most exciting acts in the Sahel playing music, including Nigerién techno, wedding rock, Woodabe guitar, WZN, Traditional music, Mandingue music, and more.

Responding to an open call from our network of artists, musicians recorded a handful of tracks on their cellphone and sent them over the popular mobile app WhatsApp. Each session was hosted for a month on Bandcamp and sold on a sliding scale, with all profits wired directly to the musicians. After a month, the EP would disappear, replaced by another one.

Now, some of the label's favorite tracks from this series are collected for the first time outside of Bandcamp as the Music from Saharan WhatsApp compilation LP. This LP features tracks by established Sahel Sounds artists such as Etran de L'Aïr, Hama, Alkibar Jr , Amaria Hamadaler (of Les Filles de Illighadad), and artists new to the label like Bounaly and Andal Sukabe."
