Sublime Frequencies presents::

Niger: Magic and Ecstasy in the Sahel

a film by Hisham Mayet

{70 minutes}

A celebration of life in the Sahel region of Africa, this film

showcases many of Niger¹s venerable music styles. Tuareg Electric

Guitar trance rock, Bori cult dance ceremonies, Fulani Folk, and

Roadhouse Gospel Rave-ups are some of the segments included in this

latest "Folk Cinema" classic from Sublime Frequencies! Filmed in

December of 2004 on location in Niger, Hisham Mayet delivers a

spontaneous, raw, and inspiring collection of images, music, and

ceremony (again with a single camera presentation) from a nation mired

in poverty and continual post-colonial disappointment. Quoting from

Mayet¹s liner notes: "This is not music as commodity, this is music as

survival. There is a saying in Niger that goes, "when we die we know

we are going to heaven because we already live in Hell" well I think

its more like the purgatory that we all live in and they sure have

managed to transcend with an incredible natural resource: Music.

Dig it!"
