Brother, cousins and sons behind Etran de L’Aïr have just announced their new album – and shared a fantastic new single.
Etran de L’Aïr, which means Stars of the Aïr, have been bringing joy to listeners and wedding guests around Agadez for over 25 years now, preserving the tradition of pan-Saharan blues-rock while updating it according to what cought their interest at the time.
This evolving family company prefer the brighter shade of desert sounds, and that’s also true about their latest single “Adouina”, the first taste of their new album “Agadez”, which will be released in February next year via Sahel Sounds. They’re already testing this material during their first – finally – your in Europe.
They’ve just visited Sweden, Denmark and Netherlands, right now they’re playing in Belgium and France, and next they’ll be heading to Germany, Czechia, Austra and Switzerland. If you’re among those experiencing difficult European (late) Autumn, meeting Etran de L’Aïr might be exactly what you need right now to add some life to your life.
