Alkibar Gignor


Alkibar Gignor is a band composed of family and apprentices of Afel Bocoum (a guitarist hailing from Niafounke). The town of Niafounke is alongside the Niger River in Northern Mali. It is notably famous for being the birthplace of Ali Farka Toure, and the tradition of music continues here. The town itself is mostly Songhai (or Sonrai), and the music that we associate with the North, the drumming guitar bass and double octave, the Malian "blues" as it may be - are mostly a variation of the Songhai sound.

Whether or not the origin is here, or, as some claim, in the Soninke region of Kayes, the sound is distinct and recognizable. The Alkibar Gignor track 'Ali Farka Homage' featured on the 2010 Sahel Sounds compilation, composed of songs from the Sahel region in Africa recorded and passed along on cellphones.
