As a youth, Baamar listened to cassettes of James Brown and Jimi Hendrix imported from Spain. His first experiences as a professional musician were playing at local parties coincided with Mauritania’s occupation of Dakhla. You can hear both Western rock influence and Mauritanian rhythms in his music, which he’s been performing and marketing on cassette for over a quarter century throughout the Western Sahara region. Doueh plays electric guitar and the tinidit (or tidinit),the Moorish four-stringed lute.
I liked beatte harab from the beginning
even more than their 2 first records as this is a more straight forward traditional recording .
today I checked my files and found an impressive number of dls
without posting it anywhere..
just happy that people began appreciating them for their music
at last and not for any (stupid) hype---so here it is in the light of day.
