The 20th Anniversary edition of Tinariwen's first studio album 'The Radio Tisdas Sessions' has been remastered and repackaged with a bonus unreleased bonus track, exclusive photos and brand-new liner notes. Tinariwen are Tuaregs, children of a nomadic Berber tribe who have roamed the Saharan desert for thousands of years. Over recent centuries, colonialism has seen the Tuareg's ancestral territory partitioned into distinct countries - Mali, Algeria, Libya, Niger. This drawing of borders has turned the Tuareg into ishumar, a displaced people in search of a homeland lost to them. Tinariwen's music - a blend of West African traditional music and electrified rock'n'roll - speaks directly to this feeling of longing: a sound that critics have called 'desert blues'.
