SOLD OUT

The Warhol welcomes Tinariwen, a Tuareg group from the Sahara Desert in northern Mali. With a name meaning "empty places," reflecting their land of origin, the group formed in 1979 in rebel camps of Colonel Gaddafi, having been forced from their nomadic lifestyle into involuntary military service.

Swapping traditional lutes and shepherd's flutes for electric guitars and drums, the group has developed their own unique style that blends elements of western blues/rock, African tribal chants and Middle Eastern traditional music. From this hybrid style, they craft songs dealing with issues such as political awakening, problems of exile, and repression of their people. The band signed to the U.S. label Anti Records in 2010, and has toured extensively, performing at major festivals such as WOMAD and Bonnaroo.

The evening will begin with a DJ set by Pete Spynda (Pandemic) when doors open at 7:30.

Additional Information

Parking for this event is FREE in The Warhol's parking lot, located across the street from the museum building.
