Tinariwen has just released a new video for their song “Taqkal Tarha” (featuring Micah Nelson) from their upcoming album Amadjar, set for release on September 6. The video is directed by Matthieu Rozier and shot in their native Mali which they have since returned to following violent political and social upheaval. The video features Tinariwen performing at a traditional Tuareg gathering and shows members of the community dancing with each other. The lyrics deal with political and humanitarian issues presently affecting their homeland and provide a contrast to the joyous nature of the video.
Check out the video here.
