Tinariwen has won over fans worldwide with their Saharan desert blues, droning guitar grooves and politically charged lyrics. Drawing its members from the Tuareg nomads, a repressed tribal people exiled from their native Mali, Tinariwen has developed an expansive sound over years spent in desert isolation. A hypnotic mix incorporating African, Berber and Arab influences, as well as American blues and psychedelic rock, Tinariwen’s extended songs are celebratory, even as they pulse with the melancholy ache of a nomadic heritage.
“Hypnotic grooves, blistering desert funk guitar work and melodies.” — Time Out London
