LAGOS STATE, NIGERIA, Wednesday February 12, 2020/www.gabfrica.net/ – Back in 2015, the artist released the memorable Tuareg remake of Prince’s 1984 film Purple Rain and Jimmy Cliff’s 1973 film The Harder They Come, Akounak Tedalat Taha Tazoughai, via Sahel Sounds. It was a seminal project that also produced a classic soundtrack by the same name.

Celebrated Nigerien-born musician, Mdou Moctar, revamps with a blazing new psychedelic single “Ibitlan” which sees the artist delivering electrifying guitar riffs in the Tuareg tradition. He sings passionately throughout the track, which as the artist notes, is a love song describing his lover’s beauty. He further described the song in a statement via The Fader:

The track is the artist’s first since the release of his 2019 album, Ilana (The Creator), which NPR Music described as the most “insane psychedelic guitar album of the 21st century.” Before then, he released 2017’s Sousoume Tamachek.
