Tinariwen Artist Snapshot:

Formed in the Tuareg rebel camps of North Africa, Tinariwen are, literally, a band of refugees playing a politically charged style of the "desert blues" associated with the region. The band formed in 1982 and began mixing traditional Tuareg music with more Western-derived guitar-based styles, releasing their first widely available album, THE RADIO TISDAS SESSIONS, in 2002. Their profile was dramatically enhanced following a performance at the now legendary Festival in the Desert, which took place in Mali in 20001. Tinariwen's music is both moving and empowering, and the group seems poised to outlast the "critical darling" status thrust upon them by an excitable music press.

Product Notes

When you hear this music clan -- group just doesn't seem to be the right designation for a band of nomad desert musicians/soldiers –- a listener can hear the calm of the desert night air and the serenity of the musicians who live there. The Taureg people truly seem to be of the land and never more so than here on the band's third album, Aman Iman. The loping percussion and the circular guitar lines conjure wide-open desert images evoked in the repetitive grooves. Some may grumble that the members are playing much as they did on the first and second albums, blending Arabic song structures, desert wails, and primordial blues guitar riffs, but for it to be any different would be akin to asking the people in Tinariwen to change who they are. Never have words been truer than those of the title, but this album also appends that sentiment, proving that music is life for the desert Taureg too. --Tad Hendrickson
