VA - Sahara Grooves (Sounds From The Desert 2000-2016)



Here is two mixtapes I made with music from the Sahara desert region (desert rock?). Tinariwen may be one of the pioneers in the genre (and there are many different projects that came out of them), and are still one of the high attractions on this scene, but there are many bands and artists, albums and songs over the years that I think have deserved more attention. I really dig the scene and the unique hydrid of rock, folk, blues, tichumaren and world music that came from north africa - Mali, Libya, Niger, Morocco, Chad, etc. Enjoy!

  1. Nathan Nothin turned me on to Toumast a couple years ago and I've been looking for similar ever since. Seems this is the place to be today.

    In other words, thank you.
