One of the biggest songs of contemporary Saharan music gets its first official release. Kader Tarhanine’s title track is a blissful love song with electric guitar and drum machine combo. The breakout hit placed Algeria's Group Afous d'Afous as undisputed stars of Tuareg guitar at home, yet they remain unknown outside of the Sahara. The autotuned Maghreb influenced Tarhanam Toussassi on the flip.

Ishumar music, strong and sweet as Tuareg tea. Another essential Malian guitar album. Look up at the constellations tonight, find the three stars that form Orion's guitar strap, and listen. Lorena Moore
