1. Noura Mint Seymali – Tzenni: The cover of this album is Seymali herself, levitating at the center of an axis of earth, fire, and water – fanciful until we learn that she’s the latest in a long family of moorish griot singers [imagine a cross between Son House and Dali Lama] of which her late step mother was already a living legend . Meanwhile, her father wrote the Mauritanian National Anthem in his spare time. As impressive a pedigree as this is, the music on Tzenni makes Noura’s own case with authority. Backed by a bass/drums/guitar combo anchored by her husband Jeiche Ould Chighaly on guitar, Seymali [playing ardine] doesn’t sing the songs, so much as detonate them, her voice scratching hot scars across the dark funk her crew lays down. Drummer Matthew Tinari produced the mad, cosmic desert blues on Tzenni and his tight, matte finish suits the rough, elemental tunes perfectly, giving them a weathered, sand-buffed feel that casts Seymali’s unearthly voice in a stark, spotlight. In a year when lots of people got credit for inventing things, Noura Mint Seymali took something old as the dust beneath her feet and made it into hair raising high-art.
