Imarhan – Aboogi

The diversity, beauty, and struggles of life in Tamanrasset are reflected in the songs on Aboogi.Following the exhilarating, eclectic Temet (2018, City Slang) Imarhan has made an album that is as serene and open as the desert it emerged from. There is incredible warmth embedded in these steady, lilting rhythms and patiently strummed acoustic guitars, derived not just from the natural environment but from the community that surrounds them. That warmth may come from the Saharan sun and those living under it, fostered by many generations of musicians that came before them, but it emanates outwards as Imarhan become leading ambassadors for their people and culture around the world.
