Tamikrest (ML) + Antistatic

Atmospheric desert blues from Sahara and polyrythmic experiments

Tamikrest in tamasheq language means junction, connection, knot, coalition. The group members come from different horizons (Mali, Niger, Algeria and France). Wanting to assume fully their Touareg identity, they found in the rebel music Ishumar the means to express it. Since the band had their breakthrough in 2006, they have played all over the world, consolidating themselves as one of the most important desert rock bands these days with names such as Tinariwen and Bombino.

There’s a raw beauty in Tamikrest’s rock’n’roll. It’s there in the driving, insistent groove that powers the songs, the lean, snaking bass lines and the guitars that twine and twist around the melodies, and the utterly natural musical blending of Sahel Africa, the Maghreb, and the West – a reflection of influences as diverse as Pink Floyd, Rachid Taha, and flamenco. Yet the Sahara, and the people who live there, is always firmly at its heart. Tamikrest has played numerous shows at Roskilde Festival and ALICE, and we’re looking forward to have them back when they play at ALICE at Stairway i Vanløse, bringing their newest album “Tamotaït” (Glitterbeat Records, 2020)

Said of Tamikrest

“The heaviest desert rock-out yet … Tamikrest’s music blazes with a righteous intensity that is almost scary.”—Songlines (Top Of The World, *****)

“Blazing with a righteous intensity born of the struggle of a people whose nomadic life is under constant threat, “Kidal” sounds like a high tide.”—Uncut (8/10)

Antistatic will open the evening with polyrythmic minimalism and experimental sounds.
