This is the US debut of Anewal, the new trio of Alhousseini Anivolla, former lead guitarist and singer of the famous desert blues band Etran Finatawa from Niger, which brings together traditional African songs of the Tamashek people of the Saharan desert in a new soundscape. With Anewal, Alhousseini continues his mission as an ambassador for cultural diversity in a changing world.

Anewal uses hypnotic two-chord jams, trance inducing beats, biting blues-infused guitar with Alhousseini’s warm vocals sung in his local vernacular. He’s an incisive and remarkably subtle guitarist, varying his attack on the strings, adding minute levels of natural distortion, with his incisive, blues-infused phrasing.

Anewal aims to create awareness of the cultural richness of its people and the many cultures of Niger.

“Rarely have such weighty expressions of desperation, frustration and anger felt so gentle” – Afropop Worldwide
