TINARIWEN TO APPEAR THIS OCTOBER

Back with a new album and KOKO show

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

You’ve got to be doing something right when you can count amongst your fans the likes of  Thom Yorke, Brian Eno, Carlos Santana or TV On The Radio. Formed in rebel training camps in Libya, these exiled nomads-turned-rock-stars of the Sahara have become the soundtrack for Touareg independence and reconciliation, combining traditional Touareg melodies with Malian, Western, Berber and Arabic influences to create spare, evolving, hypnotic songs. As if Keith Richards, Santana, John Lee Hooker, various members of Primal Scream, Mogwai and the Grateful Dead had got lost in the Sahara for a decade and then returned as a fully-fledged desert band.

Please note this show is rescheduled from the Roundhouse on 27th October. Bookings not made via The Roundhouse website remain valid for this date.
