00:00 | Hailing from Mali the Tuareg band Terakaft (meaning "The Caravan") are regarded as the pioneers of desert rock. No other band from the desert is closer to Tinariwen than Terakaft. This is because it is a part of it: a part that has grown like the rock arm of the desert collective.??'Alone (Ténéré')' was born out of a need to maintain sanity in times of broken dreams and lies. This might be Terakaft's most rock-oriented album to date but at the same time it is also their most poetic. Five years ago, with their album 'Aratan N Azawad' and even the follow-up 'Kel Tamasheq', Terakaft was still full of hope, things had started to change. Today the soil that was supposed to blossom is burnt by selfishness and rivalry.
