Tinariwen's Rorschach Video For 'Chaghaybou'

Tinariwen drop a desert blues rorschach test video for 'Chaghaybou.'

Earlier in 2014 veteran desert blues rockers Tinariwen released their seventh studio album.

Accompanying the release, Tinariwen has already dropped ultra-psychedelic visuals for album standouts "Toumast Tincha" and "Imidiwan Ahi Sigdim."

Watch Tinariwen's "Chaghaybou" video below.
