Mdou Moctar Delivers New Concert From Niger River


In the grand scheme of artists who find themselves playing live shows, few take the claim as seriously as the members of Mdou Moctar. The band is easily made up of members who not only adore music but who relish in the portrayal of it as well. While the music from their newest album Afrique Victime is already filled with passionate bursts of sound, performing it live brings a whole new sound and way to experience it. Not to be outdone, the band is performing four songs at the Niger River and it should be a doozy.

The band definitely takes their rise with ease as they elevate the songs with their spirited sounds. Digging in deep they offer up sounds that mystify you as they wash over you. The way they utilize the way in which the guitar gets portrayed offers sounds up that you cannot describe. The simplistic set up offers a sound that feels organic and without pause while the band does their best to keep us all ready for what’s next. The lyrics are strong and the performances are stronger as the band proves their space in our musical world is not only a blessing but a deserved right as well.

The video can be viewed above or on YouTube. The band’s new album is available directly from Matador Records. Mdou Moctar is on tour starting February 27, 2022 at The Orange Peel in Asheville, NC until August 06, 2022 in Katowice, PL at OFF Festival. Their complete tour dates can be accessed here.
