Mdou Moctar is a self-taught Tuareg guitarist hailing from Abalak in the Azawagh desert of Niger. In a somewhat crowded Tuareg scene, Mdou stands apart from his peers. One of the
few original singer/songwriters willing to experiment and push the boundaries of the genre, his unconventional styles have won him accolades both in Niger and abroad. See more information about Mdou and his music here.
