Subtitled: Wezin, Jakwar And Guitar Boogie from the Islamic Republic of Mauritania. "Recordings of the Beydane complete with 28 tracks, a dozen different performers, & extensive liner notes in a 32-page booklet. In Mauritania's capital city, Nouakchot, you'll see thousands of one story buildings with the peaks of Bedouin tents rising from their walled courtyards or roofs, next to shacks pieced together from scraps of tin, wood & concrete blocks. Every few blocks, breaking up this architectural rhythm, you will see a few two story Moorish style palaces, their eggshell paint gleaming in the sun. You will also, inevitably, hear the music of the Beydane, which lives behind the walls, in the courtyards, & in the sandy open patches of these neighborhoods."
