Boomkat Product Review:
Group Doueh's second Sublime Frequencies album 'Treeg Salaam', if you're not familiar with Group Doueh, this is as good a place as any to get your fix, featuring tracks compiled and edited from Salmou "Doueh" Baamar's personal cassette archives recorded between 1989-1996. Next to Omar Souleyman and Group Bombino, Group Doueh are one of the few acts to be fully signed and released through the label, offering full length albums of original material which have become cherished by heads the world over. Their sound centres around the fiery electric guitar blues of leader Salmou Baamar who sounds uncannily like Jimi Hendrix on mescaline, creating a sandstorm of modal riffage and mindblowing raw fusions of traditional Islamic music with a Western Saharan passion. But it wouldn't be a Group effort without his wife Halima and friend Bashiri's urgent vocals and the phased keys of his son Jamal. Together they make one of the most exciting and unbridled sounds we've encountered in years, hence this CD coming with our warmest recommendations.
