More uncompromising 'desert blues' from Mali.,
This review is from: Imidiwan - Companions (Audio CD)
'Imidiwan' is the fourth album by the exciting Touareg 'desert blues' band, Tinariwen, which maintains the high standards of their previous recordings. Despite their popularity they show no signs of compromising their style for a Western rock audience and the passionate, mesmerising music on this marvellous CD transcends any language barrier. There is also a bonus DVD of a short film shot on location in the Sahara by French film maker Jessy Nottola. 'Imidiwan' should be a strong contender for the best album of 2009.
