2020:

▶ Music from Saharan Cellphones | sahelsounds is a compilation of music collected from memory cards of cellular phones in the Saharan desert. In much of West Africa, cellphones are are used as all purpose multimedia devices. In lieu of personal computers and high speed internet, the knockoff cellphones house portable music collections, play back songs on tinny built in speakers, and swap files in a very literal peer to peer Bluetooth wireless transfer.
