Tinariwen

Many of you probably already know about the amazing French music blog, La Blogotheque.  If you haven’t heard of it, check it out as soon as you have about 8 hours to kill.  It mainly features musical artists playing their songs while walking through the streets of Paris.  Delightful!

I was recently on the site and found an awesome video featuring Tinariwen. They are a group of Tuareg rebels from northern Mali. The band has been together since 1979 and gained popularity in refugee camps in Libya until they returned to Mali after the cease fire in the early 90’s.

Click the picture below to see the video and read more.

Tinariwen is playing in NYC at Webster Hall on Saturday November 19, 2011.  Who’s coming with me?!
