THURSDAY LIVE SESSIONS - TAMIKREST

A mix of traditional African music with pop and rock !

Tamikrest is a group of musicians from the Tuareg people. Tamikrest in Tamasheq means junction, connection, node, coalition. The band mixes traditional African music with pop and rock. On Tamotaït, their fifth album, the music ignites strongly and for a long time. With the complex political situation on the Saharan ancestral lands where Tamikrest comes from, Tamotait turns out to be more than just an album. It is an act of resistance. But it is also a dream of the future. The definition of the album is there, in its title explains the singer, guitarist and songwriter Ousmane Ag Mossa. «Tamotaita means hope for positive change». Through the message of their songs, Tamikrest wants to make poetry and Tamasheq culture accessible to the inhabitants of a world larger than the vastness of the Saharan desert and open new paths between the desert blues and rock!
