Tinariwen (Tamasheq: ⵜⵏⵔⵓⵏ, with vowels ⵜⵉⵏⴰⵔⵉⵡⵉⵏ, pronounced Tinariwen “deserts,” plural of ténéré “desert” is a group of Tuareg musicians from the Sahara Desert region of northern Mali. The band was formed in 1979 in TamanrassetAlgeria, but returned to Mali after a peace accord between 1990 and 1995. Considered a pioneer of desert blues, the group first started to gain a following outside the Sahara region in 2001 with the album The Radio Tisdas Sessions’ release and performances at Festival au Désert in Mali the Roskilde Festival in Denmark. 

Their popularity rose internationally with the critically acclaimed album Aman Iman in 2007. NPR calls the group “music’s true rebels,”  AllMusic deems the group’s music “a grassroots voice of rebellion,” and Slate calls the group “rock ‘n’ roll rebels whose rebellion, for once, wasn’t just metaphorical.”

Tinariwen – Chabibi – Union Transfer – Philly – 4/18/17


Listened to this Chabibi track, by Tinariwen first time today.  This is the Tinarwin groove track. The Durham Cool doctor prescribes this song for any and all disagreements, turmoil, anger, frustration to bring in love and light.  How could you hold anger while listening to this track?  “Chabibi” translates as My Dear from Arabic to English.
