Imarhan Timbuktu, Dintchéré and Ousmane Ag Oumar present Timbuktu Echoes. Shock, sadness, nostalgia. A world shattered. Acoustic guitars echo the pain of dislocation, the loss of a past and the impediments to the future. Imarhan Timbuktu, renowned Tuareg band from Timbuktu in the Sahara, is featured on five of these ten tracks. Their rhythm guitarist, Ousmane Ag Oumar, contributes two solo pieces. The third group, Dintchéré, are young musicians from Timbuktu. Music doesn't provide the answer. It's only therapy. Waiting in empty rooms, in refugee tents, at campfires in the desert brush. Geopolitics. As always, innocent people are left as collateral damage. Cultures erased. These ten tracks are meditations on hope and despair, haunting with hypnotic guitar grooves. An abruptly reordered world has put dreams on hold.
