Music from Saharan cell phones is a compilation of music shared between cell phones owners in Mali.
Just to clarify, the music was not collected from “discarded” or “abandoned” cellular phones as has been reported. It’s a sort of funny, the notion that one could find memory cards or cellphones lying around in the trash. No, although an interesting story, the music was simply copied. In the effort of cultural exchange, I traded for a few Townes Van Zandt albums; we’ll see if they’ve survived next time I’m back in Kidal.
