Al Bilali Soudan

Al Bilali Soudan at Studio Bogolan in Bamako Mali
Al Bilali Soudan, a close-knit Tuareg family ensemble from TImbuktu Mali perform takamba music. Their instruments are traditional tehardents reinforced with electronic buzz and grit, and calabash percussion. Their musical repertoire is an evolving contemporary adaptation and improvisation of traditional themes always faithful to the path of the musical greats of the Sahara. Definitely not low-vibration music, this is one massively whirling freakout taken at headlong pace. When nothing less than a trance will do.
