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.

You don't even need to read the info to know they are singing of peace and love energy. this is such pure music -- not in a fetishization of ethnic music kinda way. it's so clear that this all resonates from a heart center. the recordings are raw and encapsulate sitting literally anywhere except a recording studio making music. love this to pieces. sumptuous
