Vinyl LP pressing. Amadjar means 'the unknown visitor' in the language of Tamashek, the one who seeks hospitality and who's condemned to an inner exile, within a territory or within himself. The story of Amadjar, the ninth Tinariwen album, begins at the end of 2018, at the Taragalte Festival of nomadic cultures in the Moroccan Sahara. After a concert and a sandstorm, Tinariwen hit the road and head for Mauritania, via Southern Morocco, Western Sahara and the Atlantic coast. The destination is important but no more so than the journey itself.
