Tinariwen at Electric Brixton

Critically acclaimed band Tinariwen take to the stage at Electric Brixton!

There are no dates/times listed for this event | Visit website

After selling out Islington Assembly Hall 2 months in advance, Soundcrash are happy to announce that critically acclaimed Taureg dessert blues masters Tinariwen will be taking to the stage for what promises to be a spellbinding performance at Electric Brixton.

Due to political instability in their country, the band recorded their most recent album Emmaar away from their homeland for the first time, setting up shop in another desert: Joshua Tree, California. “This is the first time we are recording out of Africa - it has to be in a desert,” says bassist Eyadou Ag Leche. “We love all the desert, these are places where we feel good to live and to create.”

“It’s a truly absorbing listen, almost effortless. For a band that have been through so much turmoil, they convey so much beauty.” – Music OMH

“Malian musicians Tinariwen’s new Emmaar showcases their ever-swirling guitars while also displaying an increasingly refined approach to album-making.” – Pitchfork

Recorded over three weeks in a studio built in a house in a region known for spaced-out rock ‘n’ roll and psychedelic cowboy folk, Emmaar showcases an organic feel from the rolling hand drums and meandering guitars of album opener “Toumast Tincha” to the galloping beats of the forward-marching “Chaghaybou.”


Tinariwen will be playing at Electric Brixton 9 March 2017. Find out more.
