Biography

When Rissa Ag Wanaghli, former member of the band Takrist N’Akal from Niger, meets Plume, a prominent French percussionist, the new band Atri N’Assouf (the Star of the Desert.) was born. The compositions of Rissa, a Tuareg of the Air Massif, are decorated by the percussion of Plume, radiate sunshine and above all good humor. Unlike many Tuareg bands who show a relatively heavy and dark vision of their music and culture, Atri N’Assouf offers a cheerful and festive atmosphere. The amazing acoustic guitar combined with the trance percussion and rhythmic clapping creates great dance music. The colorful clothing of the Touareg also contributes to this great stage act. With their CD Akal (meaning the country) Atri N’Assouf shows clearly that the Sahara has much more to offer than we normaly expect.

    Waarom is dat om te lachen, @Valeriesuzanne? Het is toch juist mooi, dat zo'n groep daardoor meer luisteraars trekt?

    Haha, zie vooral het aantal luisteraars omhoog gaan nadat bekend werd dat het op Lowlands staat :)

    Pourquoi en France ne connait-on que le raï, espèce de soupe populaire vue et revue ? Pourquoi passe-t-on à côté de musiques traditionnelles aussi riches que celles-ci , vribrante, harmonieuse, et profonde
