From a European perspective, African music is often labelled as ‘world music’. Following this same logic, an Algerian or a Nigerian might equally categorise Johnny Hallyday as a ‘world’ artist. Well, in this case, Imarhan’s music is indisputably ‘worldly’: the guitar sound is bluesy, and if we define the Touareg blues of Tinariwen, the band’s cousins, as ‘assouf’, then perhaps it’s not so convenient to identify the source of the soul that lies therein, but rather to breath in its subtle aromas. The overall sound is rock that is everything but arid, sometimes meeting funk, and which reveals, through their immense self-titled first album, that ululation can also be adapted to rock music.
