Tinariwen’s journey is truly inspiring. The group of traditional Tuareg musicians have gone from brandishing Kalashnikov rifles in the name of freedom to brandishing their electric guitars. They capture the magic of the great outdoors and epitomise the romantic ideal of the adventurous musician, bringing together inspired songwriters and virtuoso musicians alike. Their ninth album Amadjar is the newest testament to their talent. After their appearance at the Taragalte nomadic culture festival in the Moroccan Sahara at the end of October 2018, they hit the road with a group of sound engineers in a bus that had been transformed into a portable studio. Heading for Mauritania through a sandstorm, each campout was an opportunity for musical contributions and exchanges, for rehearsals and friendly discourse over what sounded best.
Before reaching their destination, they parked up in the desert for two weeks and recorded their music under the stars. They were then joined by the Mauritanian diva Noura Mint Seymali and her guitarist husband Jeiche Ould Chigaly for the song Amalouna. Although their arrangements may be surprising, the compositions are some of the group’s best to date. The album was mixed by a close friend of Jack White, Joshua Vance Smith, who recreates a realistic atmosphere by taking us behind the scenes with snippets of conversations between each song. The post-production also features a number of well- known musicians such as Warren Ellis, the violinist and main collaborator of Nick Cave, and Micah Nelson, the guitarist for Neil Young and son of country legend Willie Nelson Californian, as well as Stephen O’Malley, the guitarist and founder of Sunn O))), songwriter Cass McCombs, and French musician Rodolphe Burger. Immersed in the musical world of the Tuaregs, the guests were able to connect with the group’s vision and integrate perfectly into their sound. Almost twenty years after their debut on the international music scene, Tinariwen remains as faithful as ever to their philosophy and it’s for this reason that continue to amaze us. @copy; Benjamin MiNiMuM/Qobuz

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their guitar-soaked electric music has become a category of rock - one that is recognised and respected from Bamako to Los Angeles. This international success has allowed many musicians from the Sahara to get their music heard. And Western rockers have often been attracted to this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.

The Great History of Malian Music

Mandingo traditions or urban intersections, ancestral chants from the griots or dance bands on the day following the Independence, the family tree of Malian music possesses deep roots, leafy branches and a strong sap. Let’s take a look back at the fascinating history.

Lhasa, An Unforgettable Shooting Star

With only three studio albums, one live album and three international tours, Lhasa de Sela left a unique mark in the history of modern popular music. “La Llorona”, “The Living Road” and “Lhasa” are distinct and accomplished works, revealing a strange yet familiar world, halfway between dreams and reality. Her light/dark songs carry the genuine emotions of an artist whose sensitive singing offers a pact of intimate complicity with the listener. Lhasa de Sela’s life contains all the ingredients for a legend, all the steps of a novel, all the emotions of a beautiful and overwhelming story.
