Music for desert picnics! Tuareg guitarist Mdou Moctar delves
into his more sensitive side with a minimal studio recording of
dreamy ballads. Thumping calabash, droning guitars and vocal
overdubs evoke an imagined desert soundscape. All instruments
and vocals are performed by Mdou, which results in a very
personal work. Emotive and introspective, the album explores
themes of religion, spirituality and matters of the heart.
