There seems to be an explosion of bands from the Tuareg regions and North Africa in general these days. Bargou 08 hail from the Tunisian side of the Bargou Valley region which sits on the border with Algeria. They are a modernized version of local traditional music, from what I understand. Very impressive.
Ghoula is an arist from Tunisia who makes an aural salad out of Hip-Hop, electronic music, North African ethnic instrumentation and whatever else he can throw in. It’s nice to hear real fusion still being made.
