JKLERH ACHEL UDWER EHADH
I spent the day and still the following night,

LERH AZAMAN IGLAERH
I spent a whole day travelling

LERH AZAMAN IGLAERH
I spent a whole day travelling

TIGILA MELA TIGILAT HAR TAKANARH AM NOUNOU
You've gone Mila you've already gone and I've plunged deeper into my dreams

ANIZDJOUM DJERH ATAT DIKTOH IHAL FALAS OULHIN
Whatever my thoughts, she occupies them all and my heart cries out still.

Chorus
KAY EBEDHOUN DE AMARHANAK ERHIK TARHET
It's a time that separates the beloved from those they love

WARHAK DAKHIM SEL INIZDJAM ED TID TEKTED
And when you think of them, painful obsessive thoughts are all that come.

I hear an echo!  And I've gone to 8 at some point on this Tishoumaren music...LLRP!!

Its a great track, so is there another reason? I fear it is a knee jerk reaction to some who associate it with the middle east. 

It is time to let the fear go and wake up to the GeoPolitical brainwashing/propaganda and False Flag agenda fed to the Western masses.

Peace.

 
 
Irrational political fear.  This is a great track, but arguably more eclectic than most RP fare.  Why can't that be the reason, instead of "knee jerk" attribution to listeners' presumed brainwashing?

I love how 'normal' that sounds on an RP board....not often I hear ANYONE ever say "I'm craving Tinariwen" except here for sure....Long Live RP!!
I'm only at a 7 on this one, though I do like the sound this band puts out and might go to an 8 one day....
not 5 minutes ago, I was craving Tinariwen. RP, you are magic.
It's tracks like this that keep me coming back to Radio Paradise-- Just a tad exotic.
So amazed that you are playing the most classic song from my favorite Touareg group, Tinariwen. I know the group well as they hail from Kidal, Mali, where I lived for several years. They are the most famous group of diaspora Touareg musicians and even opened for the Rolling Stones several years ago. You guys at Radio Paradise are simply amazing - your music knowledge is almost limitless.

Is it possible at all that people just don't like this music?  Please leave your agenda & ideology off of RP.  It's a music site.  Peace.

it has nothing to do with it being associated with the Middle East.  People have rated it as a 1 because the song is really f@#$ing annoying.  Nice try, though.
Mali musicians are in pretty regular rotation on Radio Paradise. I wonder where Bill found his love of this music?

I'd love to see these guys on a double bill with Gogol Bordello. Well, love isn't the right word...and I'd need to drink a lot. But it could be really funny, since I dislike them both so much. Does that make me weird? Of course.
 

Does it make you weird you dislike this band/track so much? Yes, yes it does. 

Can I ask a question? Please ask yourself WHY you dislike this. Dig deep. It is after all just music. . .

Peace
A 10 from me - had this in my collection for some time, don't know where I got it from (possibly an iTunes single of the week or something way back when they used to do that sort of thing), but I've always LOVED it! So happy RP plays it!

Its a great track, so is there another reason? I fear it is a knee jerk reaction to some who associate it with the middle east. 

It is time to let the fear go and wake up to the GeoPolitical brainwashing/propaganda and False Flag agenda fed to the Western masses.

I have listened this as I traveled down the interior of Morocco,  another time while arrested in a Mozambique parking lot and lately my own street - loved it everywhere. Perhaps home most of all, because it brings back the other memories.
This band is most excellent!{#Bananajam}
i have been checking out their videos and i like this band
.
i'm bumping this to an 8 
I like the lyrics translation, I'm always glad when it comes on again, tryin' to sing along with the chorus.
I like it.  But if I put it on I think my friends would either ask me to change it, or maybe just say they have to leave. 
sounding good this morning 

very interesting Wiki article
great tension and anticipation in the music of this band. most excellent!{#Bananajam}

Really worth checking out in concert - I think they have a new lead guitarist as well as the original which made for an amazing concert. Better live than in the studio by far.
One of the most hypnotic, energizing, primal music events I've experienced. If you  ever get a chance for a live show, go for it! Open your sheltered world!👂
awesome tune from an awesome band.
Cannot stand this unfortunate hideous instant migrane row 
Awesome beat for sipping a coffee in the Sun. Cheers Bill {#Dance}
No idea what they are saying but I like the groove. My ignorance is bliss, I guess.

I'm surprised I haven't rated this song yet ! I can see how it can be annoying to some ears but personally, I'm following the clapping and the waving instrument, close my eyes and I'm immediately carried away in a far away country, not sure which one but for sure a place full of sun, camels and colourful clothes.

Personally, I love the groove.  However, I can see where some think that it's something that you only need to hear infrequently.

Excellent song and it's refreshing to hear something that isn't generic, Americanised, mush.
This is why I listen to RP -- to hear music from other countries and cultures. I suspect some listeners need everything Americanized in order to appreciate its value. This has a great beat and melody line and the voices are intriguing. Not an amazing song but it's always fun to hear something outside the usual spectrum of standardized rock and roll.
I absolutely loathe this piece of irritating brain scrambling mish mash it automatically commands me to hit the radio paradise "off" switch, seems to be played far too often!

Well, yeah. If Clapton is god--witnessed on the dank walls of the London Tube, they'd try to wrest his guitar with presumably lethal consequences. BTW, these guys are really good.
The more I hear it the more I dig it.

While I've never been a real fan of this band, I came across a mention of Tinariwen in an article in The Guardian about what's happening with the rise of Islamist groups in northen Mali. Sad, and scary.
https://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/oct/23/mali-militants-declare-war-music 

The pickup halted in Kidal, the far-flung Malian desert town that is home to members of the Grammy award-winning band Tinariwen. Seven AK47-toting militiamen got out and marched to the family home of a local musician. He wasn't home, but the message delivered to his sister was chilling: "If you speak to him, tell him that if he ever shows his face in this town again, we'll cut off all the fingers he uses to play his guitar with."

The gang then removed guitars, amplifiers, speakers, microphones and a drum kit from the house, doused them with petrol, and set them ablaze. In northern Mali, religious war has been declared on music.

Wow muliticulturale trance
fun stuff, thanx Bill.........{#Dancingbanana}{#Dance}.....gotta love the Ali & R.L.Burnside licks.  {#Bananajam}
Sexy.     this makes it happen man, watch that lower region start vibing to this hypnoptic pulse
Honestly I love everything these guys do.  Some great percussion and choruses.
That's better.
I love how RP is becoming more internationally eclectic... not merely playing 'world music', but a wide selection of just damn good music from where ever it might originate.
Sounds as though things are just a little better after the French intervention, but still a troubled part of the world... puts the 'troubles' of mant current whiney singers/rappers/wannabes into perspective.... the 'hood is well tough in Mali

The singer makes weird things happen to the back of my throat.  Am I the only one?
Hey, look what you can listen to in your kitchen in the mountains of Mexico. Great music from I dunno where from a guy in California. Whatta' world.

I've been sitting in awe here listening to these sounds which I am increasingly falling in love with and reading the sad sad story how people are being terrorized that are just trying to have a little fun!!

This just in... sad and depressing...

Giants of Mali Music Now Banned By Islamist Fighters

Ali Farke Toure is perhaps the biggest music star in Africa and who turned music into one of Mali’s best known exports after teaming up with Ry Cooder, to produce the Grammy-winning album ‘Talking Timbuktu’ in 1994 has had his music banned by people who want to live in the middle ages. Toure was ranked by Rolling Stone magazine as among the 100 great guitarists of all time and starred in the Martin Scorsese documentary, ‘Feel Like Going Home’, which traced the roots of the blues back to West Africa.

The Islamist militants have banned everything they deem to be against Sharia, or Islamic law. “They are destroying our culture,” says one Mali’s most famous singers, Salif Keita. He is currently in Mali, preparing for a world tour to accompany the release of his latest album. “If there’s no music, no Timbuktu, it means that there is no more culture in Mali,” he adds, sitting in the grounds of his home on the small island he owns on the river Niger outside the capital, Bamako.

Keita is referring to the destruction in June of the ancient shrines in Timbuktu’s mosques. The buildings were Unesco World Heritage Sites but considered by the Islamists to be idolatrous.

Dozens of musicians have fled south since the crisis began, among them Khaira Arby “the Voice of the North”. “Islamists have jammed radio airwaves,” she says. ”They’re even confiscating mobile phones and replacing ringtones with Koranic verses,” she laments.

From Timbuktu to Gao, telephones have become the only way to listen to music lately. Those who have risked turning a stereo on have immediately attracted the attention of the Islamist police. Their equipment would be either seized or smashed. Now mobile phones with memory cards are the main target for Islamist militants bent on banishing music.

Giants of Mali’s music whose music is now banned

  • Ali Farka Toure: Guitarist and singer
  • Salif Keita: Singer and guitarist
  • Amadou and Miriam: Blind singers and guitarist
  • Rokia Traore: Singer
  • Cheick Tidiane Seck: Singer and keyboards
  • Mory Kante: Singer and kora player
  • Toumani Diabate: Kora player
  • Djelimady Tounkara: Guitarist
  • Oumou Sangare: Singer
  • Tinariwen: Tuareg former rebel singers and guitarists

Very disturbing indeed.
While I've never been a real fan of this band, I came across a mention of Tinariwen in an article in The Guardian about what's happening with the rise of Islamist groups in northen Mali. Sad, and scary.
https://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/oct/23/mali-militants-declare-war-music 

The pickup halted in Kidal, the far-flung Malian desert town that is home to members of the Grammy award-winning band Tinariwen. Seven AK47-toting militiamen got out and marched to the family home of a local musician. He wasn't home, but the message delivered to his sister was chilling: "If you speak to him, tell him that if he ever shows his face in this town again, we'll cut off all the fingers he uses to play his guitar with."

The gang then removed guitars, amplifiers, speakers, microphones and a drum kit from the house, doused them with petrol, and set them ablaze. In northern Mali, religious war has been declared on music.



  


Uh, like, it's got a good beat and the kids like it.  They can dance to it, Dick.
Always love hearing African music on RP
Wonderful break from all the mainstream crap I hear all day at work from the common mans radio station!! Feels like being on holiday!

Love the guitars, also quite different from the usual freaking solos.

Prove it...  You are basically claiming that they are moonlighting as musicians when taking time of either a) raiding and taking christian slaves b) using military means to expand the dominion of Islam c) they are all Ottoman Chiefs (all depending on the time period).

I find it highly unlikely that any of the above are true.  I find it much more likely that you are a racist asshat.

 
love the placement and use of term "asshat" here. {#Cheers}

on the music... bejeweled, sun dappled ocean wave, rain a desert cries for, or an ocean breeze sea birds wait days to feel under their wings

Don't be such a Simpleton, Ape.

1.) I was joking

2.) Twaregs are not Muslims (unless on paper - though not their paper!)

3.) time off  -  not time of

4.) I know more Twaregs, than you know Mexicans

5.) I do not have to proof nothing, Ape!
