Tinariwen: Spectral Saharan Blues



While this year’s Festival of the Desert has been sadly cancelled, due to threats of terrorist violence from sundry Islamists in the Sahara region, it is always good to welcome a new album from Tinariwen.

This latest was recorded, again, in exile from their home land, in Paris, Joshua Tree, and a southern Moroccan oasis, where a beautiful hidden track featuring flute was recorded with a local gnawa troupe.

They’re touring with Dengue Fever later in the Spring – that will be a very good series of shows.
