KEL ASSOUF

ANANA HAROUNA, guitar/vocals

SOFYANN BEN YOUSSEF, organ and the Moog SUB 37

OLIVIER PENU, drums

Born in Niger, he trained in Libya during the Tuareg uprising in the early 90s, Anana Harouna's trio, KEL ASSOUF means both "nostalgia" and "son of eternity" in Tamashek, the language of the Sahara nomads.

African trance rhythms melt into the energy of vintage rock which move to a dancefloor somewhere between London and Niamey - a powerful groove machine.

If Tinariwen and Tamikrest are the masters of Tuareg desert blues-rock, then Kel Assouf show how the music of the Sahara sounds once it has migrated to Europe and fused with other influences.
