Another Gem from the Desert 1 Mar. 2014
By The Nomadic Tribesman - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Tinariwen's sixth album Emmaar is a logical progression from their previous album, Tassili. This album however strikes a more somber tone than previous releases. It feels like the whole album was recorded in the middle of the night with a hushed tone, almost as if the band were afraid to wake sleeping neighbors. The acoustic guitars of Tassili are replaced with electric guitars and the muted sound is still clean and clear, with the same intimate feel that made Tassili a gem. On Emmaar, the whole work has the feeling of sitting around the campfire with the band at night.
The highlights of the album come near the end. The ninth track, Koud Edhaz Emin, has the some beautiful call and response vocals and is the most melodic track on the album. Track 10 features some nice percussion and rolls along at a quicker pace than the others, while Track 11, Aghregh Medin (Hassan's Song), also stands out with its solo acoustic guitar and percussion. There are three addition songs available on the special editions: either the CD version, Emmaar, or the MP3 version, Emmaar [Deluxe Edition]
Tinariwen deserve credit for continually revising their sound and producing new and worthwhile material. To be honest, I still prefer Tassilli but this album is certainly a worthy successor. Tinariwen and Bombino still stand as the standard bearers for the whole "desert blues" movement.

Fantastic, hypnotic music of the desert 23 April 2014
By Autonomeus - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Tinariwen is new to me. Their story is amazing, up to and including their recent exile in the Mojave Desert, fleeing their Saharan home because of another episode of political violence.

This is a Tuareg band, with members originally from northern Mali. Their music sounds to me like "John Lee Hooker in the desert," and a great, mesmerizing sound it is, with a strong rhythmic drive.

The electric guitars produce a drone that evokes the sweep of the desert and constant motion across the vast landscape. The chanted vocals remind me of Native American music -- I can easily imagine Tinariwen joining in the A.I.M. song (American Indian Movement) with drum, and A.I.M. members learning their songs in turn.

With the ravages of climate change increasing by the hour, by the day, by the year, the conditions of turmoil now affecting the Sahara region are likely to be more common in more and more regions.

This is serious music, inspiring music, for our times. Music to motive action to prevent ecocide, to save the Earth, to liberate all sentient beings!

A wonderful Tassili follow-up 6 Jan. 2015
By behicbey - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It's not as great as the Tinariwen album that made me a fan in the first place (Tassili, the acoustics get me every time), but it brings out the Tinariwen that made them who they are; the north African rock rifts that hearken back to the origins of blues, listening to the rhythms of the dessert while strumming the chords of their hearts. The melodies will stick with you for days, and I've found it's necessary to put a song on repeat for a while just to ensure the lull you're sent into lasts with you as your mind whisks you away to a far away place, all while sitting on your couch or office chair.

Even without understanding a word that they say, the true heart and soul that comes out with each vocal is enough to give you goosebumps and understand that their love and respect for their homes, people and world is truth.

stunning desert ethnic blues 27 Feb. 2014
By Charlie Quaker - Published on
Format: Audio CD
6th release from Taureg group out of the North African Sahara region—Tinariwen play stunning
desert ethnic blues with a ghostly, haunted revolutionary spirit and a natural psychedelic world
music drone. The guitar work is flawless & fluid, delicate & subtle, mesmerizingly hypnotic. You
can taste the desert atmosphere, feel the resilience of the nomadic soul as the songs glide by
with their determined native rhythm carrying the lazily concise blues riffs. As someone who does
not listen to a lot of “world music”, these songs remind me of artists like Goat, Dire Straits,
Calexico, Darkside, Santana. Unique, eerie & uplifting music.

Enjoyed it very much! 14 Feb. 2014
By Elizabeth J. Gray - Published on
Verified Purchase
I'm only a casual fan, and also not very analytical about my music in general, but I bought the MP3 album this morning and am listening to it right now - I'm on my second listenthrough and enjoying it a lot. I tend to categorize music into "found it immediately appealing" (keepers) and "didn't find it immediately appealing" (discards); many artists have at least a couple songs that fit into the first category for me, but it's rare for most or even all of the songs on a single album to do so. Tinariwen, though, seems to be an exception to that rule, and this album has been just as easy and pleasant a listen as their others for me.

For whatever it's worth coming from someone as musically simplistic as I am: two thumbs up.
