Tuareg blues pioneers Tinariwen are as much a movement as a band: always on the move – for better or worse – using their craft as a means to bridge multiple generations and nationalities. Their unmistakable grooves sprung like roots in Mali as a radical new sonic form, fusing traditional folk movements and Western influences melted in unprecedented fashion. Tinariwen live are as urgent as they are a balm for body and spirit.
