Secousse presents JAGWAR, a record-book proposition:

- A 7inch vinyl record by Terakaft, produced by Justin Adams (Robert Plant, Brian Eno, Tinariwen…)

- A novel by Philippe Brix written in English and French.

Welcome to the fascinating world of Terakaft, one of the most legendary bands from the acclaimed Desert Blues/Tuareg Rock scene that’s been nurturing in the Sahara desert for the last two decades.

A world made of light, dust, goats, tree shadows, gas, tea and fire.

A world where teenagers don’t dream of being footballers but guitarists like Ibrahim of Tinariwen, like Sanou of Terakaft, or like Ousmane of Tamikrest.

A world made of constant stuggles, of war zones, where getting a visa to tour is nearly impossible, where covering your face and head with tuareg turbans to face the desert winds will turn you into a potential islamist when boarding an airplane.

A world that Philipe Brix knows damn well: he’s been managing those guitar heroes for the last two decades. 'Jagwar' is his coming-of-age story, a tale of resilience, of doom, of family, of utmost tensions and unrivaled peace, the adventure of a life time.

His journey will take you from the deepest deserts of Mali, Morocco and Mauritania to the biggest music festivals all accross Europe and America.
