B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 4 JUNE 2011


Group Doueh, a family-based musical outfit from the Western Sahara, has released a wonderful new release, Zayna Jumma, on Sublime Frequencies. It's still filled with crazy circular guitar patterns, dizzying rhythms and raw energy. Vocalist/guitarist Salmou Bamaar and vocalist (and spouse) Halima Jakani have expanded their sound (and band) to present arguably their finest release yet.
