Product description

Product Description

Nothing is more evocative of the fascinating expanses of the Sahara desert than the music of Tartit, a Tuareg band consisting of five women and four men residing in the Timbuktu region. Tartit play hypnotic, trance-inducing music: the women sit down, sing, and play cyclical rhythms on their tinde drums, while the men sing and play string instruments, acoustic and electric. The men are veiled, the women aren't. Tuareg society is one of the few throughout Africa in which women are allowed to choose (and divorce) their husbands.

The band was formed in a refugee camp, during the Tuareg uprising in the early '90s. Tartit have toured Europe several times (including the UK), most recently as part of the Desert Blues shows. The album was recorded in Bamako and in the northern Mali desert by Congotronics producer Vincent Kenis, on his mobile studio. The track 'Achachore I Chachare Akale' features lead vocals and guitar from Afel Bocoum, who has played with the legendary Ali Farka Toure in the past.


(4 stars - Top Of The World Album) 'A Rousing, evocative set.' -- Songlines, (Robin Denselow), November/December 2006

(4 stars) It is the stark, intense beauty of the stripped-down material that impresses most. -- The Times Knowledge, (Nigel Williamson), Oct 28 - Nov 3 2006

(4 stars) The rise of desert rebel blues outfits continues apace with this very special release. -- Jazzwise, (Jane Cornwell), December 2006 - January 2007

Another reminder of the extraordinary wealth of music that exists across Mali and the Sahara. -- Songlines, (Robin Denselow), November/December 2006
