Tamikrest - New Album

Tamikrest , "a 21st century rock group who just happen to live in the middle of the desert" (Mojo), returns with a stunning fourth album KIDAL, an album that perfectly balances their rocking and meditative elements. The recordings took place in Bamako, Mali, with Mark Mulholland from Tony Allen's Afro-Haitian Experimental Orchestra producing. It was mixed by David Odlum who won a Grammy for his work with Tinariwen.  Tamikrest are blazing ahead and prove again that their reputation as one of West Africa's most innovative bands, is well-deserved. The cry of suffering and the yell of rebellion. Power and resistance. This is pure Tuareg rock'n'roll.
