Catalog no.: SS0000039

Item ID: 441897

Instrumental synth and lute from the Sahara desert. Playful electronic drums combine with gothic tinged organ freakouts and quivering electric "banjo" to create an anachronistic trance music. Griot Jeich Ould Badu, playing a lute with built in phasers and pre-amps, and synth wizard Ahmedou Ahmed Lewla, on an Arabic scaled pitch bending keyboard, are amongh the country's leading artists. Hypnotic and infectious, 'Top WZN' (WZN stands for 'instrumental music') was originally released on cassette only. This LP is the first international release ever of the celebrated regional genre. Edition of 500 LP's with handmade covers.
