Tinariwen with Kishi Bashi
Tinariwen with Kishi Bashi |
"Hypnotic grooves, blistering desert funk guitar work and melodies which drift from eerie melancholy to keening defiance."—Time Out London
Since Tinariwen last played the Wexner Center, the band have won over fans worldwide with their desert blues powered by droning guitar grooves and politically charged lyrics. Tinariwen (whose name translates as "empty places") represent the Touareg people, the exiled Berber wanderers of the south Sahara, whose rebel identity they express in songs that describe this disenfranchised people’s expulsion from Algeria, ongoing strife in Mali, and cry for self-determination.
