    The manager at my local HMV recommended this album.

    It's basically Tuareg folk songs electrified.

    I know, I know. Trust me; it rocks.

    Nice - it reminds me a little bit of the Master Musicians of Joujouka.

    But is it enough to make you sell everything for a Dano Hodad and a battery-powered Peavey..? :p

    Wow, cool to see these guys mentioned here, I've worked with them (producing/mixing)!

    I'd also recommend Lazywall - a hard rock band from Morocco that I've also worked with:

    Sssshhhhh....

    You'll make the prices climb. :D


    Seriously though, it's not the first time I've been knocked out by the surprisingly good sounds people get with inexpensive gear. Just workin' it.
