Amoeba Review

02/10/2014

Northern Mali band Tinariwen’s seventh album comes across as both a passionate love letter to the band’s homeland and call for attention to the troubles it faces. Recorded in Joshua Tree, Calif., Emmaar effuses gorgeous Saharan guitars, intoxicating rhythms and lively vocals. “Chaghaybou” curls its guitar lines on a singular, syncopated groove, while spirited chanting keeps the whole thing floating ecstatically. You don’t have to understand the Tamashek language to feel the passion behind the vocals on the “Arhegh Danagh (I Call On Man).” Mostly, Tinariwen’s striking music speaks for them, whether it’s the polyrhythms of “Timadrit in Sahara” or the stunning guitarwork on “Emajer,” which recreates the feeling of waking up on a gorgeous day. Though Emmaar is a great album on its own, hopefully the success of Tinariwen helps to bring attention to the struggles currently afflicting northern Mali, beset by fighting between rebel groups and a shakey government. Thus, the stunning Emmaar feels all the more vital. Read More
