This was a lively, exciting show as Moctar toured in support of his new album.
This was recorded from atop a tripod about 10 feet in the air (to try to get above people talking -- mostly successful) using a Superlux S502 stereo ORTF microphone and fed into a Sound Devices MixPre 6. Audacity was utilized for gentle compression and EQ adjustments.
Listen, using headphones or external computer speakers:
Thanks very much to Chris Kirkley, the owner of Sahel Sounds, for helping me acquire the permission to tape, and to Max for doing great room sound.
Please support these superb musicians by seeing their live shows, buying multiple copies of their great merchandise (your friends are starving for great music -- why aren't you buying them music?), and talking to them respectfully after shows. Unless they look tired or something.
