Tinariwen | NEW ALBUM - Emmaar - OUT NOW!
Tinariwen - Emmaar
From the Southern Sahara deserts of Mali, Grammy award winning band Tinariwen return with their new studio album Emmaar. This is the awaited follow up to Tinariwen's acclaimed 2011 release Tassili which was recorded in the Algerian desert.

Due to political instability in their homeland, Tinariwen recorded Emmaar in another desert: Joshua Tree, California. The new album showcases an organic feel from the rolling hand drums and meandering guitars of album opener "Toumast Tincha" chants to the galloping beats of the forward-marching "Chaghaybou."

Along with the original members who founded the group in the 1980s and the younger generation who grew up listening to the band and joined in the 1990s, a group of American musicians appear on the album, including Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, Matt Sweeney from Chavez, Nashville fiddler Fats Kaplin, and poet Saul Williams. Emmaar is a richly layered listen solidified by atmospheric textures and gritty guitar-work.
