Tallawit Timbouctou ~ Takamba WhatsApp 2018 EP

a3886286091_10

“Takamba music is played on traditional guitar (tamashek: teheredent), with a remarkable distinctive rhythm tapped out on a calabash. It’s always accompanied by a beautiful ghostly dance. The origin of the music remains somewhat shrouded in mystery. Suffice to say that it’s a hugely popular music that ruled the festivals and weddings in the North of Mali and Niger, before it was bumped out of fashion by the electric guitar teshumara that now dominates the scene.”

Terhardent: Agali Ag Amoumine
Bass Terhardent: Oumar Kane
Calabash: Ibrahim Dicko
