Bonus interimistic post! Here is a great record that was thanks to a fellow blogger and good friend Janas, who runs a most exquisit blog named Chaudron and that is worthy of many walkabouts. The picture below is from one of his previous posts on a book about the Hoggar Tuaregs, check it out here. He also has a remarkable collection of records and some of the most rare vinyl, some that I have been looking for during a long long time. This record is one of them! I am very happy to share with you this most appreciated addition to the Luobaniyan archives, and there are some more equally great ones waiting to be posted also generously shared by him.. Hope you enjoy as much as I do!

I could not resist this one for many reasons but there is one obvious maybe only to me and maybe some other with a fascination for numbers and a little superstitious or shall we say occult streak ... I must admit that lIke August Strindberg I also take instructions from some sublime messages in the cosmic underbrush and the catalogue number clearly indicates that this record is "for sixty nine" ;-)

I've always wanted to listen to some old recordings of Tuareg music. It'll be interesting to listen to after all the new bands like Toumast and Tinariwen.

Thanks for the share!

Thank you Janas & Bolingo.
I have enjoyed your previous post with Touareg music, and am looking forward to this one, particularly the Tazengharat, which is a rather rare performance on record, as far as I know.

Only just discovered your chest of priceless treasures.Many thanks for allowing us to listen to so many real gems. These Touareg recordings are truly wonderful, especially the tindi. I was recording Touareg music at the same time in the Tassili but unfortunately not many of my recordings have survived. It is great to hear some splendid desert music from that time.
