Desert Blue Mixtape

Desert Blue Mixtape

640 426

Straight to the heart of the Sahara for some music from the desert nomads that make it — the Tuareg.

Though we in the West call them Tuareg, the people of Tinariwen — the name they use for the deserts that make up the Sahara —  call themselves the Kel Tamsheq, or speakers of Tamsheq. They make music that is undeniably a root of what we know as the Blues.

This is a mix of new and older work from past masters and skilled aspirants; deep, bluesey and trance-inducing stuff here. Be careful…
