In 2010 Chris Kirkley (sahelsounds.com) discovered this tune bumping from the speaker of a cellphone in Kidal, Mali. Upon returning from exstensive travels in Mali and Mauritania 2010 Chris compiled this tune and a handfull of others he had gathered via cellphone memory cards, and released Music From Saharan Cellphones as a Cassette tape via Mississippi Records.
