nomads n' guitars

The NYT writes about Tinariwen's new album here.

By now, this is an oldie...


  1. thanks for turning me on to them. i was unfamiliar.

  2. Oh, hey, glad to give a little in kind for all the cool stuff I've discovered over at your place!

    They've been higher profile in Europe than here, although they have played in the US (there's utube footage of them at Coachella, I think). I feel for the person who gets stuck doing their visa application. ("They're from where? And their religion is what? And what do they do again?") There is no doubt in my mind that that person is not paid enough.
