Tinariwen is a band of Tuareg musicians hailing from the desert region of Algeria. This video is taken from Tinariwen’s album Imidiwan: Companions, and the footage featured in the video are clips taken from the DVD short film that accompanies the new album.
Nouvelle Vague covers songs that you probably know and then transforms them to the type of music that you’d want to hear if you were wandering the streets of Paris wearing Chanel couture and looking impossibly fabulous while doing it.
The work of Franco-Moroccan singer Hindi Zahra has been described as a mix of French folk, Moroccan psyche, and hip hop. Whatever it is, it’s good stuff.
