A guitar hero from Agadez in Niger, Mdou Moctar is fast achieving a rep as the desert blues scene's Jimi Hendrix. "Tuareg music from Agadez is very different to Tinariwen," he told Mojo 306 as his Detroit-recorded Ilana (The Creator) was released. "They play slower and are always focussed on the words. The new generation in Agadez wants it fast, lots of energy. They want to dance."
