Description
The founding members of Terakaft, Kedou Ag Ossad and Liya Ag Ahlil, both played in Tinariwen, a group of Malian Tuareg musicians whose guitar-driven, Saharan "desert rock" proved addictive to Western audiences.

"Terakaft plays an attractive West African popish blues that first gained international recognition in the music of Ali Farka Touré. Featuring ringing, layered guitars, almost the North African equivalent of early Byrds folk-rock, simple anthemic melodies, trancelike unison vocals, and lots of attitude, there's an undeniable pull in this music that resonates with some of Ry Cooder's bluesier projects or perhaps more closely with Taj Mahal."—Audiophile Audition

"There's nothing to distract from the hypnotic interplay of the quintet's three guitars, one bass, and chantlike, call-and-response vocals. Aside from some very infrequent handclapping, there's no percussion to speak of. Yet, the trio of acoustic and electric guitarists manages to create a galloping, mesmerizing sound that propels the album forward like a caravan of camels across a line of sand dunes. But the sound isn't everything here. Terakaft's lyrics—helpfully translated into English in the excellent liner notes—pack a potent political punch, too."—Sing Out!
