An inside look at Christopher Kirkley's project Sahel Sounds, which began as a blog to spread field recordings, evolved into a record label and now serves as a 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 bridges cultural as well as geographical distances. It celebrates musical performances of current artists from Niger, while leaving room to reflect on today's role of ethnomusicology.
