Ahmed Ad Kaedy

with the support of :


Solo project from Sahel Sounds’ Tuareg guitar and voice maestro… ag Kaedy ponders the seeming impossibility of returning home.

He sings in the Tuareg language, “I see Kidal there before me and it’s become like the ruins of a civilization,”
his voice sounding parched, weary, and unfiltered. “A land of the United Nations, the French military, and a terrible drought.”
Kaedy updates the politics of the Tuareg music pioneered by Tinariwen in deceptively laid-back tunes like “Azaman” (“Era”),
which compares Mali’s northerners to “small animals, separated from their mothers”.
