AllMusic Review by

Most of this music (notably the charming women's and children's songs that open the recording) is unexpectedly west/Central African rather than Touareg in vocal and drumming style. The lute and spike fiddle sound more like the fringes of the Sahara, but even they remind one of some eastern African playing. This delightful, unfamiliar music has admirably thorough notes.
