Azawad Kel Assouf’s new album title literally translates as surprise and it’s a term that’s emblematic of the rousing music contained within it. Crunching guitar riffs burst from seemingly nowhere, glimmering keyboard lines appear, soaring vocals float, charging drums pound and beat and the bass slithers with a sultry grace, all forging a heady groove

On their third album Kel Assouf mix the mesmeric desert blues of Tinariwen with the full-frontal assault of Led Zeppelin, Sabbath, or Queens of the Stone Age. Their frontman, the charismatic, Flying V-toting guitarist Anana Ag Haroun, grew up in Niger, where he began playing the desert blues of the Tuaregs. When he relocated to Brussels the volume was tweaked. Haroun sings of the anger of the stateless Tuareg people over magnificently grungy guitars propelled by the power drumming of Oliver Penu

Stoner from the Desert Tuareg Rock Band Belgium/Niger. Black Tenere (Glitterbeat) on tour.

Hot on the heels of their acclaimed album "Tikounen" an album the Guardian called 'aleap forward in the modern Tuareg soundtruly radical' Kel Assouf return with an even more transformative collection. Produced by the band's keyboardist Sofyann Ben Youssef, the mastermind behind AMMAR 808, the new album strips things back to a power trio and focuses on the crackling, electric energy of Nigerian front man Anana Ag Haroun's next level Tuareg rock songs. Tracklist: 01. Fransa 02. Tenere 03. Alyochan 04. America 05.
