As part of our LIFF Selects Programme

Sahel Sounds is a ground-breaking project by musical pioneer Christopher Kirkley comprising an independent record label, a blog and a platform. The project promotes and celebrates the incredible music from the Sahel region of Niger in Northwest Africa. In A Story of Sahel Sounds we get to witness the entire process from the search for legendary local musicians, negotiations for a fair deal for the artists, vinyl production and the organisation of international tours. Featuring inspirational musicians like Mamman Sani, Mdou Moctar and Les Filles de Illighadad.
