SOTW: Assossamagh


artist: Imarhan
album: Imarhan

The vastness of the desert escapes me as my joints inexplicably move to the modern Saharan rock beats of this sextet from Tamanrasset, Algeria, singing in a language I don’t know, but I understand the bluesy, gritty spirit. Someday, this song will be played at the opening of the edgiest western film, but until then, me and my groovy, sunglasses-clad caravan will continue our trek. The horizon may be far, but Imarhan is on repeat so it’s no problem.
