Hidden Gem #89: TisDiss – Yamedan


We don’t usually miss releases from Sahel Sounds but we’re a little late to the party on this one. Released in 2015 Niger Tuareg rock outfit TisDass dropped this fantastic album that’s designed to get you up on your feet and keep you moving and grooving. Led by singer-songwriter Kildjate Moussa Albadé, former bassist for Group Bombino, his solo project draws on his vast repertoire of influences, inspired from his years on the road. Covers and some original compositions, paying homage to desert origins of assouf music. As with everything released on Sahel Sounds, this one’s top-quality – highly recommended.



Released December 1st, 2015
