Tinariwen

16 Jul 2019 (19:00) at Heineken Big Top

€30 (€30 members)

For Grammy–winning Saharan blues band Tinariwen, the desert is their home, and their hypnotic and electrifying guitar rock re ects complex realities of their base in northwest Africa. Founded in the 1980s in Tureg camps in Libya and exposed to western music these poet–guitarists and soul rebels deliver songs imbued with aching beauty and lonesome poetry. Their music expresses the aspirations of their people, the Kel Tamashek or ‘Touareg’ of the southern Sahara desert.

Their music was bootlegged and traded around the region, earning them a devout following and after travelling for ten years you can now join these world soldiers as they make a welcome return to the Festival for a night of achingly beautiful desert rock.
