*Yes, those are members of Tinariwen in the crowd!
"An odd double bill, this, but one you’ll want to catch if you have any interest in deep global pop. Making its U.S. live debut is Terakaft, a Saharan group formed in 2001 by ex-members of Tinariwen, and certain to snare anyone hooked on the dusty desert-blues grooves of that feted outfit. Sharing the bill is Fredda, whose nostalgic cabaret-pop swing has a decidedly more urbane bent."
Terakaft plays DROM in NYC on Saturday, March 9th!! Get your tickets!
