Event Details

October 21, 2012 | 7:00 PM | Pollak Theatre

Location: Pollak Theatre

The multi-generational, Grammy winning musical force that is Tinariwen (tee-nahree-WEN) brings the sound and culture of the Sahara’s nomadic Tuareg people to the Jersey Shore for the first time — mixing regional ethnic forms with Western pop influences within an electrified wall of sound. Tinariwen have won new fans on five continents, a journey that’s taken them from the refugee camps of Gaddafi’s Libya to top-ticket music fests and The Colbert Report.

Kishi Bashi, a master at building songs from live violin loops, layered singing and beatboxing, will open the show.
