"The Tuareg musician’s first full-band studio album is an incandescent set of guitar music with a spontaneous, celebratory air—and a latent urgency reflecting the region’s very real difficulties."
While the band is playing on stage, it feels as if they’re out in the Sahara, space stretching out around every note. Mdou Moctar travels around the world entertaining audience from weddings to sold out Berlin nightclubs leaving a feeling of wanting more from his music. His new album, “Ilana” is his most ambitious to date – taking the tradition into hyperdrive, pushing Tuareg guitar into an ever louder and blistering direction.
