Desert Storm



I've never been that big into music from Africa. I know thats a criminal thing to say as theres so many flavas out there but nothings ever really grabbed me that much (and if anyone wants to educate me with some suggestions, please go for it in the comments). But I saw a band recently thats changing that. Tinariwen are one of those desert rebel blues bands from Mali. Its kind of hypnotic, soulful, circular, offbeat, blues that sounds so fresh right now.

Tinariwen - Imidiwan Winakalin
