Desert blues - Tinariwen and more
One more opinion
"From Niger, a mix of Tuareg and Wodaabe cultures."
"An acoustic version of Tinariwen (with some electric guitar here and there). Stunning live as well."
"An earlier release. Hypnotic big ensemble."
"Electric guitars - sounds like Tinariwen but the group is smaller"
"Female vocalist from Western Sahara. Hard edged urgent vocal that sounds like Mauritanian singing. Electric guitars, clapping, percussion and topped by that wailing tremulous voice and chorus singers"
"From Western Sahara - some tracks more reggae like, male vocal often sounds more Arabic, some horns. Mariem Hassan appears on one track."
"From Western Sahara - keyboards, oud, ney, horns, flamenco guitar take this release to a poppier more accessible sound."
Mauritania - Guitar of the Sands
"From Mauritania - electric guitar, backed by clapping and then later on by chorus singers. Echoes of Ali Farka or Djelymady Tounkara."
MOORISH MUSIC FROM MAURITANIA
"Amazing catchy and memorable songs - half the tracks with electric guitar, half acoustic with tidnit (like the Malian n'goni). With female vocalist and ardin player (like harp/kora) Dimi Mint Abba"
Music & Songs of Mauritania
"Dimi Mint Abba's strident Islamic sounding voice and floating chrous singers. Dimi plays the ardin, a harp or kora like instrument"
"Stunning Mauritanian female vocalist and ardin player - poppier sound with some Senegalese and Malian elements"
"Taking a more westernised route but still wonderful. I think that Malouma is known as a breaker of taboos."
Mauretanian Music ... Trarza Regio
"Extraordinary Mauritanian music. Tidnit, ardin, guitar, t'bal (drum). Mama Mint Lekbeit, her young pupil, sings on one track."
"Wonderful wailing Islamic sounding female vocalist! Her voice floats around for days before the band even get started. Ardin, tidnit, electric guitar, t'bol, clapping, chrous singers - Stunning."
"Mauritanian/Senegalese/Malian fusion - some kora, balafon, n'goni, djembe, sabar (and accordion, violin, keyboards on some tracks). Great music"
The Music of the Western Sahara
"Incredible 3 CD set with great book. Varied music from Western Sahara, at times sounding Ethiopian."
"Great singer from Mali, with floating thin female chorus, weaving traditional violin, guitars and calabash. Like Ali Farka Toure"
"Touareg pop. Not so guitar heavy as Tinariwen. Gorgeous high pitched female vocal from Aminatou Goumar"
"Tinariwen in style, guitar led great sound."
"Their best release - catchy tunes and lots of guitar but with subtle touches."
Imidiwan - Companions
"Another solid Tinariwen CD - the DVD didn't really add much, too much arty campfire footage."
Aman Iman: Water is Life
"And yet another great CD - more guitars, more catchy tunes, great singing. Beautifully packaged CD as well."
"A lighter style that includes the Moroccan gumbri and banjo. Also has Sally Nyolo on vocal on one track, plus horn section and some reggae stylings."
