Tinariwen Fall Tour

September 5, 2014 | By Francerocks

A group of Taureg musical rebels and perennial favorite of NPRTinariwen are back in America this fall with dates across the US south and west. The band, which has collaborated with members of TV On The Radio, Nels Cline (Wilco’s guitarist) and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, will finish their tour at Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Fest, which also includes performances from the other French-produced acts Yelle and Yann Tiersen.

Their latest effort, Emmaar (released in February 2014) remarries their electronic instruments with traditional acoustic instruments of the North Saharan desert area of Mali, from which they originally sought refuge.
