SS-042 Afous D’Afous - Tenere
Six piece Tuareg rock outfit from Southern Algeria. Hands down the most famous Tuareg band listened to across the diaspora, though unknown in the West. An independent album, recorded and produced in-country without the mediation of the world music industry. Classic rock aesthetic, soulful ballads and polished uptempo driving electric guitar rhythms, with a myriad of global influences from pitch bending North African synth, reverbed drenched dub, and even Indian Tabla! One of the most complex studio albums from any Tuareg guitar band to date. Plays best in a Land Cruiser, blasting across the open desert. Limited edition, old school 3-color offset sleeves.
