1st record of release of the year! @linakomusic just released a lovely EP thats equal parts intimate lo-fi and just as lush. After mastering it, I was asked to bring back those lo-fi mic plosives that I had cleaned up:) I love attention to detail like that.

Fantastic new record from Malian guitarist/singer-songwriter Oumar Konaté. Over the last year I've had the pleasure to work on several west african records from Clermont Music. This is one of my favorites.⁠
Oumar "rides a tumultuous, constantly morphing six-beat Malian rhythm with raw vocal incantations and plenty of wah-wah." - Jon Pareles, NYTimes⁠

A journal dedicated to Metal Music Studies. http://www.metalstudies.org/
In a study last year, "When fans of metal listen to the music, they don’t feel rage, anger, or despair, but “power, joy, peace, and wonder,”
so on that logic #blacksabbath = #musicforairports

Alpha Ousmane “Hama” Sankaré (aka Pedro) is a legend. He is a renowned composer, arranger, vocalist, and calabash player from Mali whose reputation grew rapidly working with Ali Farka Touré as well as le Troupe Regionale de Niafunké, l’Orchestre de Gao, Songhoy Allstars, and Mamadou Kelly. We are super excited to to be part of his second release, Niafunke. The album continue to explore the traditions of the city of Niafunké in Mali, in West Africa. Both of Sankare's albums released on #ClermontMusic and available now.
