Guardian Session (Video)

    The band of Turag musicians known as Tinariwen are gearing up to release a mostly-acoustic record titled Tassili next month. There are plenty of special guests featured on the record, including Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone from TV on the Radio, and Nels Cline from Wilco. The Guardian has an amazing clip of the band recording a song at an outdoor location somewhere in southern Algeria, which is where the album was recorded. You can even see scores of insects buzzing around the lights as the band sets about delivering this track, which is a typically folksy song that suggests the group is moving away from the electric guitars and throat singing that featured prominently on prior releases.  [via The Guardian]
