Ahmed Ag Kaedi ( Touareg Desert Blues ) - Billets
Le Molotov, Marseille
Solo folk project from Sahel Sounds' Tuareg guitar and voice maestro... ag Kaedy ponders the seeming impossibility of returning home. (He sings in the Tuareg language) I see Kidal there before me and it's become like the ruins of a civilization, his voice sounding parched, weary, and unfiltered. A land of the United Nations, the French military, and a terrible drought. Kaedy updates the politics of the Tuareg music pioneered by Tinariwen in deceptively laid-back tunes like Azaman (Era), which compares Mali's northerners to small animals, separated from their mothers.
