Microcultures. Transparent, handcrafted indie production.
One of my favorite bands, Tinariwen is doing a crowd-funded project to help bring their newest album to life, not to mention a world tour.
Tinariwen are a group of Tamashek desert nomads from the Sahara (we call them the Tuareg people here in the west), and they are a fantastic group of musicians. Take some time to listen to their music on Spotify. Their album ‘Tassili’ is awesome.
If you like what you hear, consider putting some money down on their project! I imagine they could use all the help we can offer, and I’m sure it will go a long way to continuing the existence and legacy of this great band.
