El Wali’s Tiris LP may not be well known by many in Europe, but in West Africa the 1994 record is seen to be a definitive piece of Sahrawi music. The Sahrawi are an ethnic group in the western Sahara, and their political folk style is the precursor to the Tuareg blues music that has informed or driven many of Sahel Sounds’ other releases. After an eight-year search, Sahel Sounds and the Sahrawi-run Badawi Archives present their reissue of Tiris, an album of synthesiser music and desert blues flushed with the rhetoric of freedom.
