Soundcrash presents a spellbinding night of desert blues with Grammy Award winners Tinariwen and very special guests on the 16th November at The Roundhouse. Fresh off the back of the release their new album ‘Emmaar’ which The Independent described as ‘A magical union of the poetic and the rhythmic that proves endlessly irresistible’, Tinariwen are looking to produce a show a bit special for their night at the magical Roundhouse in Camden. A truly unmissable experience.
Very few bands have a story like Tinariwen’s. Formed in Libya while in Exile from Mali, their music reflects the repression of their people and the determination for political representation. This group of Tuareg musicians incorporate influences from North West Africa, and for the recording of their 6th album ‘Emmaar’, the influence of another desert is present: Joshua Tree, California. Time Out described the album as ‘never less than hypnotic and entrancing’.
Known for their atmospheric textures and gritty guitar-work, Tinariwen remain truly absorbing with every song taking you on an endless magical desert journey. Their music has core of simplicity and honesty, this show will be unique experience that everyone should witness!
