SS035 Afous Dafous -Tarhanine Tegla 7"
One of the biggest songs of contemporary Saharan music gets its first official release. Kader Tarhanine’s title track is a blissful love song with electric guitar and drum machine combo. The breakout hit placed Algeria's Group Afous d'Afous as undisputed stars of Tuareg guitar at home, yet they remain unknown outside of the Sahara. The autotuned Maghreb influenced Tarhanam Toussassi on the flip.
