’Lush studio compositions with rolling rhythms and wistful melodies from Northern Mali’s standout Tuareg guitar band. Disrupted by political conflict in the Sahara, Amanar’s follow up is years in the making. Soulful call and response in a charged reclamation to the origins of Tuareg guitar: messages to a people divided. Songs about change, nostalgia, and hope from Mali’s band-in-exile.’
