Dakar Street Percussion
HiDERA | 06 August 2020 | 391 MB
This edition of Sessions was recorded on location in Dakar with producer and recording artist, Iss 814 in an effort to capture the sounds of Dakar’s nature and city life. We recorded the sounds of the city streets, street performers, and found sound percussion created by hitting various materials with sticks. We walked down the streets of the Les Almadies capturing the ambient sounds of birds, the ocean, and cars on the streets. We also collected trash strewn along the beaches and turned it into drum kits. The resulting pack is electrified with organic energy and vitality only found in Dakar. The sounds in this pack were recorded using zoom H6 digital portable recorders and a Sennheiser ME 66 shotgun microphone.
