CD SF034  
CD Reissue of the sold-out LP edition.  One of the most exciting records to come from West Africa.  This is Group Inerane's debut release.  These ten tracks are a combination of amplified roots rock, blues, and folk in the local Tuareg styles at times entering into full-on electric guitar psychedelia.  Guitars, drums and female vocals that never lose their power to stun the listener.

CD Reissue of the 2nd Sublime Frequencies vinyl release. Group Inerane is the now sound of the Tuareg Guitar Revolution sweeping across the Sahara Desert and inspired by the rebel musicians that started this music as a political weapon used to communicate from the Libyan Refugee camps in the 1980s and 1990s. Spearheaded by the enigmatic guitar hero Bibi Ahmed, Group Inerane has been together for several years and carries the rich tradition of Tamachek guitar songs for another generation. These ten tracks are a combination of amplified roots rock, blues, and folk in the local Tuareg styles at times entering into full-on electric guitar psychedelia. This music is performed with two electric guitars, a drum kit and a chorus of vocalists. The recordings were captured live in the city of Agadez in the Republic of Niger . Group Inerane was also featured in the Sublime Frequencies DVD Niger : Magic and Ecstasy in the Sahel . Recorded by Hisham Mayet. This CD comes with an 8-page insert which includes great photos of the musicians and liner notes by Hisham Mayet.
