Terakaft's new album ‘Alone’ has received huge praise:

‘Truth is, there’s little Nile Rodgers could teach this lot about using a guitar to get people dancing.’

**** Mojo

 

Terakaft (meaning The Caravan) are the pioneers of desert rock, a Tuareg band from Mali featuring founding members of Tinariwen.

 

 

‘Terakaft are heavier, more linear and more groove-based than their pals Tinariwen ... Producer Justin Adams moves them into heavy rock territory.’

7/10 Uncut

 

 

‘A confident alliance of Tuareg blues and rock’n’roll.’

**** The Independent

 

Their manager Philippe Brix recalls first hearing them in Mali ‘...this Tuareg guitar - a looping groove, melancholy tune, a simplicity and a profundity - that called to mind the masters of the Delta, the spirit and defiance of the early Wailers, with a desert flavour between Gnawa trance and Ali Farka Toure’s serpentine swing’.

 

‘The album is hard hitting, gritty desert rock of the very highest order ... Exciting track follows exciting track with melodies and chants which marry up to some of the most exhilarating guitar work.’

9/10 Louder Than War
