The group was founded by Ibrahim Ag Alhabib (lead guitar, vocals), Hassan Ag Touhami (guitar, vocals), and Inteyeden Ag Ableline (guitar, vocals) in Tamanrasset, southern Algeria, at the end of the 1970s. It was a period of great suffering in the desert, due to the catastrophic droughts of the early 1970s, which had decimated the animal herds and almost destroyed the Tuareg’s ancient nomadic way of life. Tinariwen began to write songs describing the pain of exile, the longing for lost homes and families, the struggle for political and cultural freedom, and the rigors of everyday life in the desert.
