WESTERN SAHARA

Currently occupied by Morocco but actively fighting for independence. I would expect that these albums will be helping that fight by bringing the plight of the country to a wider audience.

MARIEM HASSAN CON LEYOAD SONGS OF THE SAHARAN WOMEN INN1114-2 CD 14.80 COL
According to Jamie Renton of Froots the album is the rawest, dirtiest slice of blues he has heard in quite a while. Sounds like a pretty good description to me.
VARIOUS ARTISTS SAHRUIS - THE MUSIC OF THE WESTERN SAHARA ( 3 x CD ) INT3255-2 CDx3 £ 25.95
3 CD's and a 124 page book make up this set of Saharawi music, published by the Spanish label Nubenegra. It was the first compilation of such songs released in the United States. The producers of the album travelled to the Sahrawi refugee camps and spent 14 days with the artists to record the CDs 1 & 2 of the compilation, with the aim of recording with the finest musicians and singers the traditional Sahrawi music (Haul) of the past and present.
CD 1, entitled "A Pesar De Las Heridas" ("Despite All Wounds") features Sahrawi women (including figures as Mariem Hassan or Aziza Brahim) singing Haul songs, while in CD 2, entitled "Sáhara Mi Tierra" ("Sahara My Land"), the lyrics are mostly interpreted by men, including guitarist Nayim Alal and Mahfoud Aliyen. CD 3, entitled "Polisario Vencerá" ("Polisario Will Win"), is a re-edition of a 1982 album by the Sahrawi band Chahid El Uali, which included singers as Mariem Hassan, Teita Leibid, Mahfoud Aliyen and Hadhoum Abeid

VARIOUS ARTISTS STARRY NIGHTS IN WESTERN SAHARA ROUCD5079 CD £ 13.80
As the blurb on the CD says Haunting, evocative and inspirational, the extraordinary voices heard on Starry Nights in Western Sahara tell the story of the Saharawis. Straddling tradition and inovation, the songs embody the sentiments and experiences of an entire people, a dispossessed nation, longing to return to a free and independent Western Sahara.
