African Rhythms, KFAI 08/18/11

Tinariwen‘s forthcoming album, Tassili, is filled with dark and brooding lyrics and a stripped-down acoustic sound. They’ve put away the electric guitars for the moment but haven’t lost a bit of their intensity. We debuted two tracks from that CD on today’s African Rhythms on KFAI and heard plenty of other contemporary and classic sounds from the continent along the way. The show can be heard for the next two weeks at the KFAI site.
