Tamikrest are often called Tinariwen’s little brothers and there are definitely parallels to draw between these two Saharan bands, but when Tamikrest stepped onto the scene the stakes were raised.
Tamikrest take the traditional Tuareg sound and throw other influences (the likes of Pink Floyd and Dire Straits) into the mix. They take generators deep into the desert in search of the perfect synthesis of their traditional ritual drumming and the music of Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley.
