Abu Obaida Hassan
Abu Obaida Hassan & His Tambour: The Shaigiya Sound of Sudan
Ostinato Records
Catalogue Number
Release Date
May 25, 2018

Amazing and visceral recordings of Sudanese musical extrovert Abu Obaida Hassan. Ostinato present a meticulously curated assortment of swirling modified tambour, hypnotic rhythms and call and response vocals that remind us of classic Turkish psych or Creole Gwo’Ka. From the first track we’re thrust deep into Hassan’s musical world, acoustic and raw but full of energy. Way more in line with Sublime Frequencies etc than the countless African disco and boogie reissues, this is a must check for fans of early ethnographic recordings and the lineage of non-Western folk traditions. Will be getting repeated spins round these parts at least!
