The first music I ever heard from Niger was Group Inerane‘s Guitars from Agadez. I didn’t think I would ever find anything that had been recorded prior to that. But, once again, I was wrong.

Orchestre Harmonie Nigérienne de la Capitale released four singles – all on the La Musette de Niamey label. Gbehou Camille dit Nono fronted the band on two of those singles. If you have any further information, please leave it in the comment section below.

Still haven’t found anything from neighboring Chad… Yet.

Thanks to Hisham Mayet for contributing these tracks.

Catalog number LMDN 10 on La Musette de Niamey of Niamey, Niger. Released 1972
