2002 release. "Out of the desert comes Tinariwen, a band of nomads with electric guitars. The Kel Tamashek, as the Touareg refer to themselves, fiercely resisted the French and the Malian government. The Tinariwen sound emerged when members were in exile in Libya listening to Bob Marley and John Lennon. They decided to apply their traditional music to the electric guitar and became the musical mouthpiece of the Touareg independence movement. Reminiscent of Ali Farke Touré, this raw desert recording was produced by France's global troubadours Lo'Jo and guitarist Justin Adams (of Jah Wobble & Sinead O' Connor fame)."
