ETRAN FINATAWA – NIGER, WEST AFRICA

These all photos I have shot during Womad Abu Dhabi 2009.

Combining the rich nomadic cultures of the Tuareg and Wodaabe people from Niger, Etran Finatawa blend traditional instruments with electric guitars, incorporating the distinctive vocal sounds, stiff-palmed clapping and drums of the Wodaabe people into modern arrangements, transporting audiences in to the Sahara with their evocative sound, traditional dances and tribal costumes.
