Niafounke to Araouane Rally - The Movie

As promised. It is almost a year later, but I finally got around to it.

I am posting this on 11/11/08 but backdating the post to the dates the video was shot - November 29 & 30, 2007.

Wes takes the wheel.

NOTE: About the music and the band featured in this video -

I only heard them once, in the courtyard of that crappy hotel in Niafounke'. I recorded a couple of songs from my camcorder, balanced on a glass serving as tripod on our table. During a break, I asked the lead singer the name of the band and if they had any CD's. Language got in the way, but the next morning one of the guys from the band showed up with a cassette tape. This is what is written on the tape:
Abdoulaye Cisse' (Guitar)
Rec. at Niafounke' 2.01.07
prise de Son- mixage - mastering
Yoan Jaunequo
That's the best I can do for credit. I'd be interested if anyone recognizes the song.

If you would like to ehr the song featured in this video without interruption, I've posted it in the blog here and YouTube here.
