Tinariwen - Elwan Artist Tinariwen
Title Elwan
Label Wedge
In 2014 Tinariwen stopped at Rancho de la Luna studios in the desert of California’s Joshua Tree National Park. While location proved particularly propitious in terms of creativity, the human climate was just as favourable, as musicians dropped by to add their own touch. Guitarist Matt Sweeny (Johnny Cash, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Cat Power), Kurt Vile, musician Alan Johannes who produced Queens Of The Stone Age, a band with whom another guest, Mark Lanegan, has been a singer. 

All of this was honed by engineer Andrew Schepps, who has worked with Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash and Jay Z. Two years later, in M’Hamid El Ghizlane, an oasis in southern Morocco near the Algerian frontier, the band set up their tents to record, accompanied by the local musical youth and a Ganga outfit (a group of Berber ‘gnawa’ trance musicians). 

‘Elwan’ (‘The Elephants’) is musically powerful and yet poignant: every song evokes a land that can no longer be found, with all that this implies in terms of emotional range, from nostalgia for a joyous past to the tragic recent loss of a territory and of the dream that it nourished.

* Heavyweight double LP has etching on Side 4. 
Vinyl format also includes a copy of the album on CD.

Tinariwen - Emmaar Artist Tinariwen
Title Emmaar
Label Wedge
• ‘Emmaar’ was recorded in the Joshua Tree desert, California, due to political instability in their country - the first time the band have recorded away from their homeland. “It still had to be recorded in a desert,” says bassist Eyadou Ag Leche. “We would like to live in peace in the North of Mali, but this is very difficult, there is no administration, no banks, no food, no gas. Joshua Tree is in the high desert of California, we love all the desert, these are places where we feel good to live and to create.”

Guests on the album include Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, Matt Sweeney from Chavez, Nashville fiddler Fats Kaplin, and poet Saul Williams.

Tinariwen - Live In Paris, Oukis NAsuf Artist Tinariwen
Title Live In Paris, Oukis N’Asuf
Label Wedge
The album was recorded at a very special concert at the Bouffes du Nord in Paris on Saturday 13th December 2014 and features the band performing alongside 75-year-old ‘grand dame’ of Tamashek culture Lalla Badi.

She became a mentor to the Touareg in the 1970s, thanks both to her mastery of this musical genre and her commitment to the Touareg cause. Back then she took in the ishumars (unemployed vagrants), those Touareg who had set off to Libya in search of a better life.

Like them, the future members of Tinariwen also fled repression and the crippling droughts of northern Mali in those dark years, stopping off in Algeria along the way. Lalla Badi took them under her wing, became like a mother to them, a big sister, an accomplice and the performance in Paris, her first show in France in over thirty years, gave Tinarwen the opportunity to show their respect and gratitude.

Title Toumani & Sidiki

griots – custodians of the ancient oral traditions of West Africa’s Mandé people – they are two generations of kora players in a family lineage which stretches back
hundreds of years.
