Item ID: 472986

In exile from his city in Northern Mali, singer/songwriter Ahmed Ag Kaedy returns to the origins of Tuareg folk with sessions of stripped down solo acoustic guitar. Mellow pentatonic notes dance over plaintive vocals, intimate and close mic'd, endearing in their simplicity. Drifting from melancholic ballads and pleas for peace, 'Akaline Kidal' is a politically charged and poignant recording for a community ripped apart by division and civil war.

Also available: AKALINE KIDAL (CASS).
