t-i-nàriw-en "deserts", plural of t-è-nere "desert"
As a soundtrack for the wonderful diversity you can find in London I share
with you: Tinariwen, a wonderful band, I've just discovered this morning.
Tinariwen is formed by Tuareg musicians from the Sahara Desert region of northern Mali. The band was formed c. 1979 in refugee camps in Libya but returned to Mali after a cease-fire in the 1990's.
