long-awaited second lp from nigerian tuareg guitar scorchers group inerane released on cd for the first time. group inerane's sophomore lp is the latest missive from the now sound of niger's tuareg guitar scene. led by guitar hero bibi ahmed, this new incarnation introduces another legend on second guitar, one koudede maman. koudede is considered to be a cornerstone of the second wave of the tuareg guitar lineage, while tinariwen and abdulla oumbadougo are the godfathers of the scene and group inerane and bombino are the third and most current incarnation of the tuareg's voice for hope and equality. koudede's addition to group inerane's line-up arises from unfortunate circumstances — adi mohammed, inerane's original second guitarist, was shot dead in the endlessly festering rebellion battles. this new line-up is testament that the music of the tuareg will not be stopped. the sound represented on this lp is the apex of the trance stun guitar style that this scene has perfected. this is rock music as played with saharan modes.
