There's a raw beauty in the driving, insistent groove that powers the songs, the lean, snaking bass lines & the guitars that twine & twist around the melodies – intricate, rich & beautiful.

Kidal is the town in which Tamikrest first came together as a group & on this, their 4th album, they pay homage to this place that's nurtured them & their people. It's a cry of suffering & the yell of rebellion. “Kidal talks about dignity” Ag Mossa says. "This album evokes all the suffering & manipulation of our populations caught in pincers on all sides." the musical blending of Sahel Africa, the Maghreb, & the West feels utterly natural – a reflection of influences as diverse as Pink Floyd, Rachid Taha, & flamenco. Yet the Sahara, & the people who live there, is always firmly at its heart.
