Tamikrest: Kidal – album review

Louder Than War's Paul Scott-Bates finds Kidal by Tamikrest an album of defiance and hope which is well worth hearing. The struggle felt by the Tuareg nomads is represented on the album, with their hope for a homeland of their own. The songs speak of their worries about over-commercialisation of the desert and often feels like a call to arms. However, the album ultimately one of hope and defiance.
