Event description

Description

Terakaft (meaning The Caravan) are the pioneers of desert rock, a Tuareg band from Mali featuring founding members of Tinariwen.
Their manager Philippe Brix recalls first hearing them in Mali ‘...this Tuareg guitar - a looping groove, melancholy tune, a simplicity and a profundity - that called to mind the masters of the Delta, the spirit and defiance of the early Wailers, with a desert flavour between Gnawa trance and Ali Farka Toure’s serpentine swing’.
Their new album ‘Alone’ has received huge praise:
‘Truth is, there’s little Nile Rodgers could teach this lot about using
a guitar to get people dancing.’ **** Mojo
‘Terakaft are heavier, more linear and more groove-based than their
pals Tinariwen ... Producer Justin Adams moves them into heavy
rock territory.’ 7/10 Uncut
‘The album is hard hitting, gritty desert rock of the very highest
order ... Exciting track follows exciting track with melodies and
chants which marry up to some of the most exhilarating guitar
work.’ 9/10 Louder Than War
‘A confident alliance of Tuareg blues and rock’n’roll.’
**** The Independent
