Listen to Mdou Moctar’s searing desert guitar LP Ilana: The Creator (Cedar Show Saturday!)
There are times when it feels like there aren’t really any more angles for guitar-centric rock albums to take, but then something like Ilana: The Creator by Niger guitarist Mdou Moctar drops into our laps and you realize there is still some power and interesting twists in six strings and an amp. Are you skeptical like me? Give this album of Tuareg guitar a whirl. If it wins you over like it did me, don’t miss seeing it live in person when Mdou Moctar visits the Cedar Cultural Center Saturday, April 6th for what should be an amazing show.
