Sahara Rocks ! is a book on the Sahara today, its youth, its musicians, and their struggles. A documentary work about a desert that rocks with the beat of electric guitars.
I want to portray the modernity of young Tuaregs, Arabs, Songhaï, and Moors who share both good and bad news through their social medias accounts and their cell phones. Today’s Saharan music – rock, blues, guitar – is the soundtrack to their wanderings, their parties, their struggles,
and the only visa that can permit their culture to cross frontiers. 


27 x 20,5 cm / 140 pages
79 duotone images
Photography and text by Arnaud Contreras
English translation by Andy Morgan
