Christopher Kirkley in attendance for this US premiere!

Shot on three continents, this film provides an inside look at Portland's own Christopher Kirkley’s Sahel Sounds project – a blog, record label, and platform to explore arts and music of the Sahel region through non-traditional ethnographic fieldwork.

Not a strict portrait, nor a straight music documentary, A STORY OF SAHEL SOUNDS celebrates the wide range of musical performances of current artists from Niger, while leaving room to reflect on today’s role of ethnomusicology. Still held back by asymmetrical power differentials, but now backed up by an expanding globalism and new possibilities to claim their independence, artists try to reach for success — on stages and on cellphones. Featuring early appearances of bands such as Mdou Moctar, Les Filles de Illighadad, Mamman Sani and many more!
