Mammane Sani Et Son Orgue – Tunan (Niger, 1978, Niger Ministry Of Culture)

For today, I wanted to share with you “Tunan“, a bewitching dreamy Lo-Fi Afro Electro Synth Soul instrumental track taken from Mammane Sani Abdoulaye‘s first album, one of the greatest musicians of Niger & one of the pioneers of Electronic music in Africa.

Guitarist and singer, he discovered electronic music in 1974, when he was employed as a musician for the UNESCO.

One day, a delegate from Rwanda (here for one of the UNESCO meetings) brought along his Italian “Orlo” organ model. Mammane, captivated by the sound, convinced him to sell it.

This Organ was the first in Niger.

He recorded on it his first album of instrumental electronic songs in 1978, only released on a few tapes in coordination with the Minister of Culture.

He played over 30 years, and is still playing music today, recording albums and touring live.

William Onyeabor – Something You’ll Never Forget (80s Version) (Nigeria, 1982, Wilfilms Records)

For today, I wanted to share with you “Something You’ll Never Forget“, an outstanding catchy Lo-Fi Electronic Afro Funk Synth track from the legendary mysterious Nigerian musician & producer William Onyeabor recorded in 1982 on his own Wilfilms record label, that is rumored to be the soundtrack of a movie he also produced.

This LP is actually a re recorded version of “Crashes In Love“, an earlier album released in 1977 that contains the same tracks (original had one more), but played in a less electronic way than that one presented here, which is my favorite of both – Hope you’ll like it, enjoy !
