Lorena Moore Great clean sound - lively, fun, and not overproduced. Guaranteed to turn any long, boring drive into a dance party. Favorite track: Ayatma.

Thibaut Devigne This is difficult to explain as it sounds like nothing I heard before. Id say it is a sort of blue rock completely mixed with tuareg(?) traditionnal music... Anyways, there's is clear musicianship in here, and it is very enjoyable, so give it some ear time Favorite track: Ayatma.

Chops A surprise late bid for my album of the year. You will find yourself drawn in to these hypnotic,warm grooves. Charming, like a kitten in a top hat.

Ian Martyn Oh man, I'm utterly blown away by this release! I'd never heard of TisDass before this, but I'm definitely keeping them on my radar from now on. This album is everything that's right about Tuareg guitar these days! Favorite track: Izgharad.

Dominic Maitland Just blown away by how good this album is. Sahel Sounds bring you the best music from this wide and diverse region of Africa and Yamedan is no exception. A powerful, evocative and energetic combination of traditional Toureg sounds with a global Bluesy edge which at times feels intimate and at other times almost psychedelic in scope. An absolute must have in my opinion. Favorite track: Emshin.

Covers and some original compositions, paying homage to desert origins of assouf music, while ushering in an a new global sound.
