TINARIWEN (From Southern Sahara)
Tinariwen, a free-flowing band of nomadic Tuaregs, blends time-honored musical forms with a rebellious sensibility to create entrancing desert blues. A sensational live act, they electrify traditional Tuareg melodies with edgy blues, rock, pop, Berber, and Arabic influences to create a gritty, hypnotic sound.
Their most recent recording, Tassili, which included several tracks with members of TV On The Radio, won the 2012 Grammy Award for Best World Music Album.
"Tinariwen is just about the best guitar-based rock band of the 21st century." - Bob Boilen, NPR Music
