This concert is part of the Spring Festival of African Music.
There will be a dance floor at this show! One of the most mesmerizing live bands to ever set foot on the Old Town School stage, Tinariwen's sound is one of raw simplicity and melodic beauty with songs ranging from the epic and universal to the intimate and personal. Trance inducing and mesmerizing, their unique music was born from the Malian desert in which they have led a rootless Touareg existence. A Tinariwen live show is visually stunning as well with band members wearing traditional Touareg robes and turbans. Both political and poetic, Tinariwen in concert is an uplifting and powerful experience. (Taken from Old Town School of Folk Music's website)
