Boston, USA – Rounder Records released today a compilation featuring music by the Saharawi people of the Western Sahara. This comes just a few days after Nubenegra’s release of Saharawi guitarist Nayim Alal.
The extraordinary voices heard in Starry Nights in Western Sahara all tell the sad story of the Saharawis. Straddling tradition and innovation, the songs embody the sentiments and experiences of an entire people, a dispossessed nation, longing to return to a free and independent Western Sahara. Produced by Randy Barnwell.
