Imarhan Releases Eponymous Video
Imarhan can be translated to mean "the ones I care about" in Tamasheq, and the jovial, intimate visuals in the video clip from the Tuareg group's forthcoming debut album, also titled Imarhan, lives up to the translation. Filmed by Dalel Ziour in February 2016 and edited by Recbox, the video documents Imarhan in their vibrant hometown of Tamanrasset, Hoggar, South Algeria. It offers a close-up look into the passionate daily life of “the city in the desert,” filled with vivid landscapes, gorgeous tapestries, joyous dancing, and the youthful spirit of a community.
