Soundcrash presents an exclusive London date with the legendary desert soul rebels- Tinariwen live in concert at London's stunning KOKO venue.

The soundtrack of the Touareg revolution in the 1990s was made by electric guitars and rhythms inspired by the gait of the camels, somewhere between the Malian blues and the melismas of the Maghreb. Blues from the desert whose lyrics rage against indifference and express nostalgia for disappearing freedoms and their lifestyle that has existed for thousands of years.

After four albums and over 700 concerts throughout the world, the band presents its most recent project, recorded in November 2010 in the South-Eastern Algerian desert. For the first time since the beginning of their international career, Tinariwen have put down their electric guitars and returned to the very essence of their art. By taking only acoustic instruments to the Sahara Desert, the band defined a bold new direction in their already stellar career.

This is one epic adventure not to be missed!
