Super 11, The Takamba champions of the Niger bend. Gao, Mali
Justin Adams (UK) on Super 11
“At the first Festival of the Desert in 2000/2001 there were many musical revelations- Tinariwen’s trajectory has been well documented- but another very different group had a huge impact on me: Super Onze de Gao just played one rhythm, but what a rhythm ! Devastating and unlike anything I’ve heard.
