The band is noted for their excellence in the field of West African guitar music and frontman Hamadal Issoufou Moumine is one of the genre’s best-known guitarists. Given all of this, the always interesting FatCat Records was eager to sign the group. Kaani will be their first worldwide release, coming along this September. Meanwhile, you can look for Tal National on the festival circuit this summer, with the highlight being their appearance at the Chicago World Music Festival this September. Today, we are proud to present the premiere of “Wonghamey” from the upcoming record, which was amazingly recorded in Niamey over two weeks on barely functioning equipment. The meager means don’t hold these musicians down, as their superb talent shines like a diamond through the roughest of lenses.
