Armadillo Music

Tinariwen's breakthrough album originally released in 2004, now remastered and repackaged with a bonus unreleased track, exclusive photos and brand-new liner notes. The CD comes in a 6 panel digipak, with exclusive photos, and extensive new liner notes. Amassakoul features songs from Ibrahim Ag Alhabib, Abdallah Ag Alhousseyni, Touhami Ag Alhassane Tinariwen are Tuaregs, children of a nomadic Berber tribe who have roamed the Saharan desert for thousands of years. Over recent centuries, colonialism has seen the Tuareg's ancestral territory partitioned into distinct countries - Mali, Algeria, Libya, Niger. This drawing of borders has turned the Tuareg into ishumar, a displaced people in search of a homeland lost to them. Tinariwen's music ' a blend of West African traditional music and electrified rock'n'roll ' speaks directly to this feeling of longing: a sound that critics have called 'desert blues'.
