"I humbly adore the acts of the Most High, Who has given to the synthesizer what is better than a soul, so that, when it plays, the men are silent. And their hands cover their veils to hide their emotions. The troubles of life were pushing me into the tomb, but thanks to the synthesizer, God has given me back my life."

"Taaritt, [by Mamman Sani] a collection of unreleased studio sessions made in the late 1980s. The record is from an era when Mamman began programming his own rhythms, and the music is more Vangelis than Terry Riley."
