this song is about a change in world order. it takes place along the devil's highway, in the desert of the borderlands. someone is waiting to cross. she is waiting for the moon to light the way to make it easier. the tales of people who have walked this path are harrowing, the heat, the thirst, the fear of losing one's life, the deaths. and the question, is it worth it? this song is about a softer light, a call for a more compassionate world order.
Bombino's electrifying jams capture the spirit of resistance and rebellion while echoing with guitar riffs reminiscent of fellow Africans Tinariwen and Ali Farka Touré as well as Jimi Hendrix. Rupa & The April Fishes
