Touareg Rock Thread

Recommended Posts

Seeing Tinariwen last night prompted me to check if WATMM had a Touareg Rock / desert blues topic already. It didn't.

But maybe it should. When done right, this is such hypnotic stuff. Check out my favorite Tinariwen track for an example:


A big problem with this stuff is that the albums are often overly slick and produced according to mainstream rock norms. Bombino, for example, is great live but makes terribly glitzy albums.

Pretty much the only albums that don't suffer from (that I know of) are the Guitars from Agadez series. Example:


Anyone else have good examples of this stuff?
