TINARIWEN

Event Date: 
Monday, October 15, 2012 - 8:00pm

This is a rare US appearance.

The band was formed around 1979 in refugee camps in Libya but returned to Mali after a cease-fire in the 1990’s. Tinariwen are often associated with just one image: that of Touareg rebels leading the charge, machine gun in hand and electric guitar slung over the shoulder. The founding members abandoned their weapons long ago and have engineered a minor aesthetic revolution by setting the electric guitar – the instrument which became their mascot and made them famous.
