Video of 2012 Grammy Award Winner Tinariwen in Chicago

Congratulations to Tinariwen for their well-deserved Grammy award!  Tinariwen took home the Best World Music Album Grammy for ‘Tassili”.’To celebrate, I  made this video of their last hypnotizing performance in Chicago (November 2011).

This is a sweet victory that comes during times of war in their country. Our thoughts go to Tinariwen’s families and friends in the North of Mali and to the Tuareg refugees in Niger, Mauritanie, Algeria, and Burkina Faso. Here is a video of Tinariwen singing during a Tuareg tea ceremony in the Sahara Desert.
