 On 21st May, Matador Records will release Afrique Victime, the long-awaited new album by Mdou Moctar.

With Afrique Victime the prodigious Tuareg guitarist and songwriter rips a new hole in the sky – boldly reforging contemporary Saharan music and “rock music” by melding guitar pyrotechnics, full-blast noise, and field recordings with poetic meditations on love, religion, women's rights, inequality, and Western Africa’s exploitation at the hands of colonial powers.

The music listeners are the beneficiaries of the staggeringly powerful do-it-yourself musical ethic of Mdou Moctar – the man and the band – who’ve worked so hard to bring the spirits of families and communities in Niger to the West. Afrique Victime sounds and feels like a Tuareg hand reaching down from the sky, and we are very lucky for this chance to get lifted.

Afrique Victime is available on LP, CD and (exclusive to Mdou Moctar and Matador webstores only) Nigerien flag tri-colour LP. A limited edition Afrique Victime tie-dye t-shirt is also available exclusively.
