Akounak Tedalat Taha Tazoughai or Rain the Color Blue with a little Red in It (2015) is the fictional tale of a young guitarist trying to make it against all odds, starring Sahel Sounds’ Mdou Moctar (Niger) in a movie described by some as “the Purple Rain of the Sahara” and not without reason. A fantastic and fantastical interpretation of the Prince vehicle gives a riveting insight into a music scene that demands further exploration after watching this great gem of a movie.
