Tuareg band Terakaft return with new songs in their own distinctive Saharan sound. Kel Tamasheq is the follow up to 2011's Aratan N Azawad, a Songlines Top of the World disc praised by the likes of the Financial Times, Uncut Magazine, fRoots and Rhapsody. 2008's Akh Issudar was a Best Album of the Year on NPR, The Village Voice, Emusic and Pitchfork. This new undertaking is produced by Justin Adams - Robert Plant guitarist, Tinariwen producer, and World Village artist - who proves a good match for the band's raw, authentic style.
"Where so much in this style gets by on groove and attitude, Terakaft have variety, musicianship and
well-crafted melodies on their side."
A stellar new release from World Village on October 9th!
