The band Terakaft (“caravan”) comes from Northern Mali and brings in a fascinating way the hypnotic and rhythmic Sahrawi clues.
Doueh originated in Dakhla, a city in Western Sahara, and owes its powerful sound to a mix of traditional Hassan music (from the Yemenite-Arabic heritage) and pop, folk and blues.
