Some 5-minutes sketch with my OC - Saoirse, a Sanou’s close friend (nothing romantic between them, it’s only friend zone). Saoirse is from Ireland, she is one or two years older than Sanou and study at univercity now. And fast sketches of Sanou that I made yesterday while waiting my girlfriend at the metro. Sanou is tall and very slim, and often grumpy or thoughtful and has very emotional face so it always interesting for me to draw him.

Since the Tuareg guitar band Tinariwen from Mali was launched into the international stratosphere nearly 20 years ago, it’s become something of a rite of passage for rock musicians to guest on their albums. This time around, for Elwan (Elephants), their eighth international release, they’re joined by Kurt Vile, Mark Lanegan (formerly of Screaming Trees), Alain Johannes (formerly of Queens of the Stone Age) and guitarist Matt Sweeney, who’s worked with everyone from Will Oldham to Run The Jewels.

But that’s all a sideshow: The main draw continues to be Tinariwen itself — with the band’s swirling guitars, rhythms inspired by the gait of camels and gutturally declaimed poetry.

First Listen: Tinariwen, ‘Elwan’
