Wednesday's Reader Picks

Have you recently heard a great track that you would like to share? Send in your review of a track for our weekly "Reader's Picks" series. Here, we want to know what you listen to.

"Imazeghen N Adagh" by Tinariwen

This track is from the recently released album, "Imidiwan: Companions." The group started slowly forming in the 1970s as young Touareg men in Algeria and Libya with a passion for music began performing together, gaining a reputation by 1979 as the Kel Tinariwen, or "Desert Boys." This particular album fuses field and digital recordings together into what becomes a beautiful version of the Desert Blues. This group mixes their influencesMalian refugees in North Africa who finally return to Mali in the 90s to create a distinct Touareg sound.
