In the Tamashek language of the Toureg, Saharan nomads from Mali, Tinariwen means "empty spaces." The group Tinariwen was formed in a rebel camp run by Libyan strongman, Muammar Gaddafi, over two decades ago, and has been making music in the desert ever since. Their use of electric guitars was a first in a vast Saharran region where power is only sporadically available. Their hypnotic desert-blues features call-and-response vocals among the extended group. Underground cassettes of their spellbinding music has counseled anti-violence and ethnic pride among the youth of their war-torn region for over twenty years. Listen now to music from the deserts beyond Timbuktu...
