    Live In Paris 2014 is a superb introduction for the uninitiated, as well as a welcome souvenir for the experienced. Warm, potent, invigorating and liberating--it’s difficult to imagine a better live band existing this side of the Sahara.

    When Tinariwen plays gigs, however, they offer a raucous, rowdy live show that lends itself more to shimmying and grooving, rather then translating and contemplating. Live In Paris, even with its questionable sequencing and skip lags between songs, begins to explore that.

    Live albums often undersell their artist, but this proves an inviting, well-judged showcase.

    Live In Paris is a pure window into the troubled soul of the mid-2010s Tuareg. [Jan 2016, p.92]

    Road-toned chops and anticipation of desert homecoming combine to evince a mighty set. [Jan 2016, p.81]
