TINARIWEN

PRESENTED BY STUART'S OPERA HOUSE, OHIO UNIVERSITY AFRICAN STUDIES, & THE PERFORMING ARTS SERIES

Tinariwen are guitar-poets from the southern Sahara desert. They are icons of freedom and resistance among their own people, the nomadic Touareg of the Sahara. The band made waves throughout the Desert playing what became the soundtrack for Touareg independence and reconciliation.They are the ambassadors of one of the oldest and proudest people on earth. They play their music to teach us about the beauty of their desert home, the strength and dignity of the nomad and his way of life, and the problems of poverty, oppression and lack of development which continue to hamper their progress. Tinariwen’s edgy, bluesy sound has earned them fans like Robert Plant and Carlos Santana,whose music inspired Tinariwen’s members when they first picked up guitars.

"Sensational!  There are plenty of bands who know how to rock, but very few who know how to roll.  Tinariwen are the masters of roll'n'roll." - BBC Radio
