Music from Saharan Cellphones Vol. 2 — more of the same, if not an increased selection of sounds from Mauritania (referred to as “Jagwa” collectively east of Shinqit). Again, all mp3s collected in the town of Kidal, the quintessential desert crossroad. Some of the track titles are lost to the id3 dustbin of history, but the tracklist is best replicated here, with a few creative flourishes:

Side A:
Mdou – Niger
Mouma Bob – Imidi
Amanar – Alghafiat
Fenomenal – Mix
Polisario
Jagwa

Side B:
Pekele – Decale
علي سيدح عبدي فون
Yalah
Lalal-Kanaye – Soul Tamasheq
Mauritanie
Nouakchott 48 hours
Bayta – Aicha
