West African mono chordal desert trance music. Psychedelic droning guitars. Tamasheq (Touareg) are a Saharan nomadic people who were in conflict with the government of Mali in the 80s, armed by Qaddafi. Tinariwen was formed in a Libyan camp for Tomashek rebels. This was Tinariwen’s first western release after a series of regional tapes. Track one sung by a guy who’d been shot 17 times.
