8 SONGS FROM vol. 05 - The Tuareg Sahara


The amazing songs included in this playlist belong to a style which mixes traditional Tuareg music with electric instruments (mainly guitars). The result is sometimes called Saharan Blues and it is a relatively new style, largely brought by one group only, Tinariwen, which formed in 1985 and consisted of rebel fighters (like many other later groups). The songs are usually played in the pentatonic scale and feature a call-and-response style of singing, sometimes accompanied by trills and shouts. One bonus track, a collaboration between Tinariwen and Canadian based, Indian-born Kiran Ahluwalia.
