When Imarhan released their self-titled debut album in 2016, they stepped into a genre already flooded with talent and exposure, but still managed to rise to the top and be heralded as the 'new wave Of Tuareg music'. Temet is a huge leap forward in production, as well as creatively for Imarhan. Whereas their debut was anchored in the meditative Desert Blues tradition, Temet eclipses such notions, finding bounce and drive by stirring their sound with funk, fuzz, disco and rock. This is not a novel concept to the band, as anyone who has seen them play will attest. Imarhan's experience as a touring band has reinforced the focus and meaning behind their music. With Temet, Imarhan have firmly established themselves as a band to reckon with. Rather than being distracted by meddling around with big producers or famous guests, they've focused this release on their inherent strength of songwriting, using the eternal bonds in their community, families and friendships as a blueprint not only for an amazing standalone album, but as a reference for generations to come.

I am so excited for this release. I really enjoyed the addition of the feminine voices in some of the chorus. The music stands on it's own but I always like to read the translations of the lyrics to find the beautiful messages they send us. Even though I'm from the Midwest USA I find the lyrics very relatable even if you don't know the Toureg history that they have endured as a people displaced by greed and ignorance.
A must see on U-tube their performance this past summer at Rudolstadt. including a standing ovation and an on cor to knock your socks off.
The whole crowd moving and rocking and cheering. Love love love
