Ambient field recordings collected across the Western Sahel by Christopher Kirkley (Sahel Sounds). Sounds of desert oases, late night radio broadcasts, village calls to prayer, and riverboats drifting down the Niger river. A nice companion piece to the musical work from the Sahel Sounds blog, this an hommage to the sounds that don't always find their way onto records.
