Tamikrest is tamasheq for junction, connection. Since the 5 group members come from different regions of the world, it’s an ideal word to describe the band. Their music is a tribute to the Touareg identity, spiced up with modern rock influences. Lyrics are about the never-ending longing to a free world. Through the message of their songs, Tamikrest wants to make Tamasheq poetry and culture accessible to inhabitants of a world larger than the immensity of the Saharian desert.
|Take a trip across the world in an unforgettable evening of cutting-edge desert-blues. Join TAMIKREST, a 5-member band from Mali known for fusing African music with modern rock influences to share the richness of their Tuareg identity.
|Don’t miss irrepressible rock ’n’ roll complete with electric guitars and djembés perfect for a cool evening in the heart of Downtown Tucson.
