Tartit

Biography

While it feels like there's been an avalanche of desert blues and Tuareg recordings since the late 1990s, the truth is that Tartit and Tinariwen are the two main bands that have gained exposure outside of their native Mali. Tartit, the more traditional of the two, features five female singers/drummers and four male vocalists and plays the kind of long-distance, hypnotic desert music that has seduced music fans the world over.
