Tinariwen Amadjar Cover

After recording their last two albums in the US, Tinariwen returned to the desert on Amadjar, working on the songs under the Saharan stars on a journey across Morocco and Mauritania and then recording them in a tent. Various guest artists add ornamentation – but at the album’s core is the soul and dignity of Tinariwen, restored to their natural milieu and back to their best. A Top of the World in #151.
