Must-See Music Pick! From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
Regarded as the Rolling Stones of the Saharan desert, the gaggle of Taureg (aka nomadic sand people) that created Tinariwen were originally rebel fighters bent on expressing themselves with electric guitars. Enter indigenous instruments like the tende (goatskin lute) and the amzad (single-string bow) and the suffering and exile of their people just found a harrowing awareness vessel. (Gavin Paul)
