Terakaft from World Village On October 9th

Kel Tamasheq
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!
