From the Sahara Desert in northern Mali comes the Tuareg band of musicians known as Tinariwen, one of the most popular and best-selling African groups on the planet. Formed in 1979, the band has lived a story of rebellion, war, travel and triumph, as it became an internationally renowned touring act in the early 2000s. Rooted in the sounds of West Africa, Tinariwen mixes Western instruments with Tuareg rhythms and timbres. The power of their poetry makes for an intense and intimate live experience. – Enter for a chance to win one of two pairs of tickets we’re giving away to see Tinariwen at the Iron Horse Music Hall in Northampton on Thursday, March 27th, 2014 at 7pm.

Tinariwen are poet-guitarists and soul rebels from the Southern Sahara desert. Their music expresses the aspirations of their people, the Kel Tamashek or Touareg of the southern Sahara desert. The guitar is their weapon. Simplicity is Freedom. Tinariwen are often associated with just one image: that of Touareg rebels leading the charge, machine gun in hand and electric guitar slung over the shoulder but the founding members abandoned their weapons long ago and have since engineered a minor aesthetic revolution by setting the electric guitar  the instrument which became their mascot and made them famous  to one side and giving pride of place to acoustic sounds. The desert is the landscape of their existence, the cradle of their culture and the source of their inspiration. They’ve recently collaborated with members of TV On The Radio, Nels Cline (Wilcos guitarist) and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band.-
