Formed in 2001, Terakaft is literally related to Tinariwen, the oldest and most respected of the Tamashek-speaking Tuareg bands of northern Mali. Original Tinariwen songwriter Liya Ag Ablil (a/k/a Diara) joined his nephew, guitarist Sanou Ag Ahmed and Kedou Ag Ossad in 2006. Like Tinariwen, Terakaft plays what they call "assouf," although you may know it as Mali's desert blues. It's still a vamping, hand-clapping, call-and-response groove.
