Tinariwen but not quite...,
This review is from: Adagh (Audio CD)
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?
