Touareg rock’n’roll from Algeria
Another band to emerge from the fervent Touareg blues scene of north-west Africa, Imarhan produce a sound hard to find among their peers. An eclectic outfit who can execute everything from melodic, acoustic slow numbers to rampant, rhythmic rock-outs, the band have the capacity to impress the most casual of listeners. Their prowess and musical ability is showcased best on their self-titled debut album (a Top of the World in #118).
