Rock the casbah

VOGUE Hommes International (English) - - DON’T MISS -

For years, Ti­nari­wen’s Tuareg blues has sent gui­tar riffs ric­o­chet­ing through the sand dunes. The band, which hails from north­ern Mali, mar­ries African mu­sic with rock in wind­ing elec­tric mantras that earned them a Grammy. This is the first time th­ese de­scen­dants of no­mads have recorded out­side the Sa­hara, but true to their her­itage, they chose the Joshua Tree desert in Cal­i­for­nia for this lat­est al­bum. With some of Amer­ica’s own hot–shot mu­si­cians along for the ride, Ti­nari­wen ex­plores a deeper, more pol­ished sound with­out stray­ing from its ori­gins or its orig­i­nal­ity.
