about

Tuareg guitar from Northern Mali by Kidal's hometown band. A different side of desert blues with high energy gritty guitar sessions that are popular favorites. Recorded at a local studio in 2008 during the last uprising, the music is very poignant as the North has again fallen into rebellion and the band is scattered in exile. The title translates as "Peace". Includes detailed liner notes in Tifinagh.
