TINARIWEN - RADIO TISDAS SESSIONS
Vinyl LP pressing. Even for a band hailing from the nomadic Tuareg population, roaming the deserts of Mali, Africa, the members of the Grammy winning band Tinariwen have travelled further than most. Since breaking through to a global audience, their music has taken them around the world and been championed by artists as diverse as Robert Plant, Brian Eno, Thom Yorke and TV on the Radio. 2001's THE RADIO TISDAS SESSIONS marks the point at which the band first made strides to global acclaim. Where previous albums had been issued only on cassette for regional markets, THE RADIO TISDAS SESSIONS was released on CD and distributed worldwide. It saw the group working with British producer Justin Adams and French collective Lo'Jo, but despite the outside influence, there was no softening of their sound: hard guitar licks and wild rhythms color their spare, dust-beaten music.
