Event Details

October 21, 2012 | 7:00 pm

Free Event

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.
