Tinariwen, a Grammy-winning band of nomadic Tuaregs from the Sahara Desert in northern Mali, brings a rebellious sensibility to entrancing desert blues. A sensational live act, they electrify traditional Tuareg melodies with edgy blues, rock, pop, Berber, and Arabic influences, producing a gritty, hypnotic sound. 

“This music still moves like a sandstorm. Even at slow tempos it swirls with motion, and nearly all of its forward drive comes from the guitars and bass.”—Pitchfork
