Tinariwen - Kel Tinariwen [CD]
Catalogue No.: WEDGECD0122
Release Date: 04 Nov 2022
A revelatory discovery in the Tinariwen archives, ‘Kel Tinariwen’ is an early cassette tape recorded in the early 90s that never received a wider release, and sheds new light on the band’s already rich history.
Not having yet developed the fuller band sound that they became internationally established with, ‘Kel Tinariwen’ features their trademark hypnotic guitar lines and call-and-response vocals weaving in between raw drum machine rhythms and
keyboard melodies that almost evoke an Arabic take on 80s synth-pop.
There are distinct parallels with the sounds found on this tape and the work uncovered in recent years by cratedigger labels such as Awesome Tapes From Africa, Sahel Sounds and Sublime
‘Kel Tinariwen’ features songs from Abdallah Ag Alhousseyni, Hassan Ag Touhami aka ‘Abin Abin’, Kedou Ag Ossad, Liya Ag Ablil aka ‘Diarra’ and Keltoum Sennhauser.
