I ran across this on youtube the other day. I kind of dig this guitar playing.
Interesting, a lot of his technique seems to be derived from oud technique more than guitar. You might look into Bombino.
edit- going back to the picture above, it seems Bombino was actually next in your queue.
Desert rock is awesome. Tinariwen is great too.
Love it when that SG kicks..
Cool! I had no idea this genre even existed. @Otto, totally agree about the SG. Love that tone.
Yes, love it.
Bombino too, he has a cool style.
Yes, great stuff!
Yes, really good stuff.
Then if you really want an adventure, you could try sorting out all the assorted Toures from around the Mali- Senegal area. A lot of great guitar music for fans of modal melodies, but 2/3 of the musicians are named Toure Something or Something Toure. Some aren't- I like Alpha YaYa Diallo a lot, and Salif Keita is a great singer. Then you could head to Algeria and try to sort out all the Chebs and Chabas. By the way, for fans of funny scales and augmented seconds the Algerian scale (major scale with 2 and 6 flattened) can be fun to play with.
You might find the 'JuJu' collaboration between Justin Adams (Jah Wobble, Robert Plant) and Juldeh Camara interesting.
Here's a taste:

The guy playing the white Strat needs to peel off the film protecting the pickguard. I can't help but peel those off, it's like a mental thing, how can people leave those on for years?
I just saw this video and was about to post it when I saw this thread. Fantastic! I guess Mdou Moctar missed the fuddy duddy TDPRI memo that no one plays guitar anymore.
A new one from Mdou -- I love the live energy. I was totally unaware of this genre and candidly am fairly ignorant about the Tuareg people in general. I look forward to exploring this music and learning more about both the music and its origins.
Mdou Moctar is absolutely great. Just crushing it. Smashing everything I like about blues rock into this backdrop of Saharan/Taureg, just remarkable. No words, that's hard for me. I usually have a crappe tonne of words. Just wow, been a while since there's been something "new". Refreshing, layered, impressive and somehow familiar. He's fantastic and I hope he enjoys a very big career.
