Tinariwen Announce North American Dates

The celebrated band Tinariwen are set to tour North America in support of their powerful new album entitled Tassili in stores now. On their latest, the renowned "Touareg" band returned to the essence of their hypnotic desert blues sound. Recorded in the South-Eastern Algerian desert, the band is joined by Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone of TV On The Radio. Later on, virtuoso guitarist Nels Cline (Wilco) and the horns of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band contributed.

The result is a simultaneously exotic and accessible sound that has garnered the group rave reviews. The band was profiled recently in the New York Times and Tassili debuted on the Billboard Top 200 its first week out and is currently #1 on the CMJ New World Chart.

In reviewing a recent sold out performance, Consequence Of Sound offered "Tinariwen proved why they've earned a reputation as one of the world's most entertaining acts; their performance was a true testament to the universal power of music."

The band's sonic trek across North America begins with a performance at the Ooh LA L.A. Festival in Los Angeles. The event is sponsored by the Consulate General of France and, among others, trendsetting radio station KCRW 89.9. Tickets can be purchased via various outlets and at: www.oohlalafestival.com
