Musicians (Mali)


| Utne Reader September / October 2007


Formed in 1982 in Muammar Gaddafi's Tuareg rebel camps, this celebrated blues band gave up guns for guitars, singing in French and Tamashek and playing a style of music called tishoumaren ('music of the unemployed'). The group's creative heart is the vocalist and guitarist Ibrahim Ag Alhabib, who can strike a mean Chuck Berry riff. The band's Aman Iman ('Water Is Life') was released this year.
