IMARHAN

TAHABORT / ASSOSSAMAGH

CITY SLANG



indies only 7"

Released: 25th Mar 2016

£6.99


calm and passionate tuareg soul, sumptuous slow burners, and a complexity of composition that hasn’t been demonstrated by previous music exported from the Saharan people’s musical repertoire.

 Imarhan, meaning ‘the ones I care about’, started out around 2008, a loose collection of friends who began to play together under the watchful eye of Sadam’s cousin, Eyadou Ag Leche, bass guitarist of their ‘older brothers’ Tinariwen. Imarhan have a sound that reflects their cultural and generational background; dry guitar riffs, pop melodies and pan-African rhythms which draw on traditional Tuareg music, African ballads and the modern pop and rock the band heard growing up.
