LEARN HOW YOU CAN MIX DESERT BLUES LIKE KEL AZAWAD!
Kel Azawad A Desert Blues Band From Africa
Kel Azawad is an awesome desert blues band that uses a mix of traditional equipment like guitars and bass, and unorthodox equipment like a Calabash, a plant normally used to hold water.
Recording Their Music
We recorded 3 tracks in 1 day. Recording this one is tricky and we had to use many methods and recording techniques, trial, and error. The Bass is Recorded via DI Box + a less expensive low-end mic on the Amp (15 watt Harley Benton) The guitar’s had one mic each, the lead guitar a S609 and Rhythm a SM57.
The Struggles of Recording The Mix
The big thing we had to keep in mind was to get the right instruments together, the loud Djembe had to be away from the Guitars to have less unwanted bleed. The two guitar amps were positioned as they were paned in the mix, so it works better with the room mics. The volume had to be adjusted since we had just one, small room to record in.
Recording The Mix
