From the Western Sahara with Love, A Mix by Bedouin Sahrawi

From the Western Sahara with Love, A Mix by Bedouin Sahrawi

In between emails, Instagram and random internet searches, I pretty much spend my days listening to mixes of semi-obscure(at least to me) African, Caribbean and tropical inspired mixes. I even have a playlist on Spotify called "Funky Stuff" that my friends love to tease me about. When I first heard this mix by Bedouin Sahrawi on the Ghostly Soundcloud, I was hooked. Lots of tribal vibes mixed in with some soul searching Balearic tunes that take you on a journey. A perfect mix for late afternoons when the sun is extra warm and you have time for one last dip in pool. Ghostly already did a nice job describing the sound below, so here you go...

"Bedouin Sahrawi is a DJ and music collector from Western Sahara currently living in the Canary Islands but born in the Sahrawi refugee camps of Tindouf, Algeria. Moving to Spain opened him up to a new world of western music and he effortlessly braids the music his desert roots with the duende and melancholy of Spanish music. His GhostlyCast traverses an expanse of genres, skipping and twisting like a whirling wind across open sand and over open ocean. Stop at any given point in its two hour span, and you could find yourself soaked in Balearic sunshine, lost in the meditative turnings of folk samples, or being shepherded along by hazy, bubbling acid bass lines. The vast space of the horizon swallows each echoing note as the mix pulls you into the deeper heart of the desert."
