Art Drop | Griots Lead the Wanderer Caravan

Story Highlights
  • Art by Enmanuel Martinez
  • Inspired by Tinariwen

The oral historians, Griots, are used by many cultures. For Wanderers, they’re one part history, one part traveling band.

The Wanderer caravan is leaving a Kel’tama tomb with the Griots at the front of the procession. Singing a song of their past as they leave the sacred Vinyata tombs. The Griots are the keepers of hidden history, and the Kel’tama have some of the most secret of tales.

After seeing how cool the band Tinariwen was, I knew I wanted the Tuareg vibe in a piece. And what better than through the Griot! Brought to you by the awesome Enmanuel Martinez.

This is one of my favorite pieces! I say that a lot, but legit, this is one of my favorites. This one has just so much soul and personality in it. The camel with the sunglasses, and mini fan drone. There are a million little details in this piece that just make it pop.
