For over 30 years, Tinariwen has been making desert blues - once healing, once hypnothizing. Featured on their last album: TV On The Radio, Kurt Vile, Mark Lanegan, Cass McCombs, and many others.
Tinariwen produces Touareg rock, electric guitars, bass and drums surfing on Sahara waves. Their sound is authentic, spiritual, and groovy. Their lyrics don't shy political messages. Or like Damon Albarn said: "they were proper rebels, and what a wonderful way to advertise a problem to the world: through music. You don't have to understand the words to hear something deeper in it. It's mood that says it all".
