Sahel Sounds is a project focused on culture in the West African Sahel.
Sahel Sounds began as a blog by label founder Christopher Kirkley in 2009 to share field recordings. Today, it is a record label, artist collective, film production house, and arts organization.
We work directly with artists that we represent and aim to have input and control over artistic endeavours. All profits are shared 50/50. We’re commited to using culture as a means of communication, helping our artists build careers, and listening to good music.
Marisa Anderson is a wanderer at heart, creatively as curious as she is proficient. On Cloud Corner, Anderson’s music is boundless. Rooted in American folk music, her pieces are inspired by 20th century classical and West African guitar techniques. The results are revelatory. Written and recorded in a period of political and personal upheaval, the album was created as a refuge, an ode to stillness in an era of ceaseless noise. Marisa Anderson’s Cloud Corner is an album of remarkably intimate beauty, tranquility in times of turmoil. -Thrill Jockey
