Christopher Kirkley left his job and decided to travel, and so began Sahel Sounds – a record label and blog bringing the music of the Sahel region of North-Central Africa to a wider audience. Carrying on in the tradition of musicologists like Alan Lomax, Kirkley collaborates with many of the artists of the region, often discovered through music recorded and shared on cellphones, giving them an exposure they had hitherto never expected. Together with performances full of vigour and enthusiasm, this documentary showcases musicians such as Mdou Moctar and Les Filles de Illighadad, who have both benefitted from Kirkley’s passion and since toured outside of Africa.
