Tuareg Rock

Bildergebnis für kel assouf

I am not a huge fan of world music but sometimes an artist appears with a new record that fascinates me and want me listen more. One of those is Tikounen by Kel Assouf. Their music is a mixture of ragging rock drums, cutting guitar riffs and chants. Their music is forceful filled with blues-rock licks, borrowing the sound of Led Zeppelin or stoner rock. But their sound is also dominated by a great rhythm section and pulsing basslines what makes their sound a bit like dancefloor. All this combined with Tamasheq sound of the Tuaregs makes this record worth listen to. Probably the best world music record this year so far.
