RootsWorld's Music of the Month for January, 2017


Serendou
Zinder
Hirustica (www.hirustica.com)

Lee Blackstone writes:
"Two musicians from Niger meet with a Breton flautist. Serendou are comprised of Yacouba Moumouni (flute, vocals), Boubacar Souleymane (singer, percussionist, guitar and kountigui – a one-stringed lute), and Jean-Luc Thomas (ebony flute, electronics, vocals). Zinder's substance is thrilling on several counts. The musicians go deep into Nigerien music. The tunes shimmer, and the flute playing brings to mind the circularity that one hears in Breton music – a round, call-and-response rhythmic sway that characterizes a lot of the album. They create a sonorous palette of influences to create an original, vital statement. The composed and the spontaneous merge, and flow with grace into something wondrous." Read Lee's full review.
