Tinariwen’s breakthrough album originally released in 2004, now remastered and
repackaged with a bonus unreleased track, exclusive photos and brand-new liner

+ LPs are pressed on indigo blue vinyl.

Tinariwen are Tuaregs, children of a nomadic Berber tribe who have roamed the
Saharan desert for thousands of years. Over recent centuries, colonialism has
seen the Tuareg’s ancestral territory partitioned into distinct countries - Mali,
Algeria, Libya, Niger. This drawing of borders has turned the Tuareg into ishumar,
a displaced people in search of a homeland lost to them. Tinariwen’s music – a
blend of West African traditional music and electrified rock’n’roll – speaks directly
to this feeling of longing: a sound that critics have called “desert blues”.

Drift Recommends

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.

You can subscribe to it via our Spotify public profile.
