THE CONCERT NO ONE TOLD YOU ABOUT

They step on the stage gently, their words like a whisper from an oasis far away, Tessalit. If you close your eyes, you can even picture it: the ocre houses rising in the midst of the Adrar des Ifoghas, soon joined by Tinariwen’s song.
They hum a moving story, the Tuareg rebels’ exile to the massif between Mali and Algeria, beginning of the 90ies. The beauty of landscape slowly faded away, infused with sadness and suffering.
You can hear it clearly through the Eastern notes of the music: a touch of blues to add to the nostalgia, a hint of rock to highlight the strength of the tribe. To share their story, the blue men have kept their traditional darbuka drums and youyous, adding electric guitars, creating the perfect balance between two worlds.
This music, created in the Sahara, travelled with them to another desert in California, where they recorded their latest album. Other artists come and go, joining the leaders of the group on the stage, carrying the same message.
Their world tour will take them through Malaysia, with a brief stop in Kuala Lumpur this Monday should you want to hear them live.
