I love them. Beautiful trance like music. Hope to catch them live one day. When we get rid of the virus.. In the meantime this will do just fine.
Favorite track: Eliss Wan Anas Douban.
Sublime recordings from rural Niger. Two very different sides of Tuareg music - dreamy ishumar acoustic guitar sessions, and the hypnotic polyphonic tende that inspires it. Guitarist Fatou Seidi Ghali and vocalist Alamnou Akrouni lead the troupe, named after the village. Recorded in the open air studio of the desert.
