Format: Audio CD
Tamikrest have been mooted as the spiritual sons of Tinariwen. And in fact they sound remarkably similar. I can tell the difference between Tinariwen, Toumast and Terakaft but this latest ensemble is pretty much a Tinariwen tribute band. That said, surprisingly it's a "must buy" - if I had heard this CD before any of the others and judged all Taureg blues by Tamikrest's "Adagh" (the hills) I'd find it difficult to surpass. The sound is slightly fuller and maginally less strident than Tinariwen's, a little more comfortable to the western ear. But there's no obtrusive production and all the magic ingredients are there - jangly, rambling guitars, a chorus of voices, utulations, dub-like bass lines, evocative yet elsuive melody lines. The tracks are all different enough to be musically interesting enough in their own right yet Tamikrest (the knot of union) deliver more than anything the unique flavour of modern Tuareg music - that weird crossover sound of the Shadows playing Captain Beefheart songs with Osama Bin Laden on lead vocal!

It's not a great departure from anything you've heard before from similar bands. In fact it's more of the same. But it's beautiful, authentic desert blues, born of rebellion and a burning sense of injustice. I rate it highly.If they can keep delivering material of this standard, they will move out from Tinariwen's shadow. They may not be the first, or the most original. But they could just possibly, in time, be the best.

Yet another Tamasheq (or Tuareg) 'desert blues' band!
The sound is very similar to Tinariwen - electric guitars leading the way.
It's great but I'm not sure how much more of this I will continue to buy. I don't understand the lyrics, so I'm listening to sound and texture. This is fine but after a while the 'desert blues' sound just rolls into one. I think these guys need to experiment a bit and find their own sound. Perhaps a more acoustic approach would help? Or fusion with another culture such as the mix with the Wodaabe explored by Etran Finatawa?

Great tunes, bit twangy (but that's the style). Not sure i could listen to a whole cd of it. Prefer the mixed artist collections i think. Jeez, how many words do i have to write before Amazon will let me submit the review!!!
