Tinariwen

8/4/2018 | Benaroya Hall

Music Downtown

These extraordinary guitar-poets from the southern Sahara desert blend blues, rock and pop with Berber and Arabic influences to create an altogether hypnotic concert experience. A bass chord and a chorus of male voices open the dance, followed by youyous, cries and handclaps. The powerful melodies of Tinariwen have become the soundtrack for a whole generation of exiled Touareg youth living in Algeria and Libya.
