When reminiscing a journey into the Sahara desert, my memories are supplemented with a musical score. Landscapes transforming from dusty villages into gravel plains before gliding into an extensive setting of sand dunes, layered with repetitively alternating male and female verses over Amazigh guitar melodies and keyboard rhythms. Passionate lovers’ voices forcefully trying to express their sentiment through the electronic suppression of auto-tune. As we were driving up and down a countless number of slopes, Mustafa’s cell phone connected to the four-wheel drive’s sound system blasted the soundtrack onto my recollection of our expedition. LV
