Future Nostalgia: Atiyyah Khan with Sahel Sounds


South African music journalist, DJ, and researcher Atiyyah Khan (El Corazon) digs out gems, past and present. The show is an extension of the music collective she co-founded in Cape Town called Future Nostalgia, which has hosted listening sessions in the city for the past eight years.

For this week’s show, Atiyyah explores two hours of music from the Sahel Sounds platform – which has dedicated the past ten years to researching and releasing hard-to-find music from the Sahel region in Africa. She speaks to label founder Christopher Kirkley about running the label. They also talk about the compilation series, Music from Saharan Whatsapp released over the past year during the pandemic; digital colonisation and utilizing DIY-technologies – while exploring some of the best music released by the label. Thanks to Grant Jurius from Future Nostalgia, for the artwork.
