K Civ feat. Ahem Mediferai "Tuareg" (original demo mix)
Tuareg ~ An original Tuareg people's medical chant gets a little added rebump from K Civ with some underground dance beats that take this original Tuareg medical chant to another level while hypnotizing any crowd or dance floor.
Tuareg Medical Chant ~
"Chants like this are performed by the nomadic Tuareg people of the western Sahara to cure the ill. The music excites the sick person to dance in an increasingly vigorous manner until either cured or totally exhausted. The dance motion is similar in appearance to that of someone falling over his feet while running in place at top speed. This chant is performed by three men and four women who are led by Ahem Mediferai, the chief of a tribe which was temporarily camped near Gao in north Mali. The lead singer is a female medium who first enters a trance while playing a small drum, then improvises florid melodic lines in seven languages, alternating between them so frequently that her words cannot be understood. Occasional outbursts of unusual vocal sounds are intended to represent the devil being chased away." ~ Stephen Jay 1976
