New Zealand International Arts Festival 12 - TinariwenAdd to Cart Download
Born out of Libyas refugee camps and refined during Malis Tuareg revolutions, Tinariwens music began as a way to highlight the persecution of their nomadic people. Their hypnotic brand of desert blues, based on traditional West African rhythms, features incredible electric guitar riffs and the vibrant beats of hand drums. Their lyrics rage against the indifference to their plight and express nostalgia for a lifestyle that has existed for thousands of years, but is fast disappearing...In a career that has now spanned 30 years, Tinariwen has produced five albums (their last recorded on acoustic instruments in the desert) and played over 700 major festival concerts throughout the world, inspiring everyone from Carlos Santana to Coldplays Chris Martin along the way. From the sands of the Sahara to the Town Hall stage, you have to be there for this extraordinary group.
