Today's music was inspired by a recent viewing of the film "Akounak Tedalat Taha Tazoughai," or "Rain the Color of Blue with a Little Red in It." The first feature film in the Tamashek language, the film is a loose retelling of the "Purple Rain" narrative, reset in the town of Agadez, Niger, among musicians in the area. We heard from musicians from Niger and Mali, including music by the film's lead player, Mdou Moctar. We also had a stop-off in a live moment by the Senegalese-French duo Chamber Music.
