Tinariwen Release New Video Via Rolling Stone

The beloved Grammy award winning band Tinariwen are debuting a brand new video today via Rolling Stone Magazine. The clip captures a recent captivating live performance with the popular North African "Touareg" group joined on stage by Flea and Josh Klinghoffer of the world famous Red Hot Chili Peppers. To watch the video go to href="http://www.rollingstone.com/videos/new-and-hot/tinariwen-flea-and-josh-klinghoffer-cler-achel-20120404">Rolling Stone.

The group has announced a series of North American live dates as well as some select international dates opening for the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

In addition, the band will be lending their support to this year's Record Store Day. The April 21st celebration is designed to call attention to the vital culture surrounding independently owned record stores with special releases, in-store appearances and other forms of celebrations. Tinariwen will be contributing to the cause with the vinyl debut of their Grammy winning album Tassili in a special Record Store Day edition which includes four remixes, available for the first time anywhere.

Tassili Remixes include:

1) Tenere Taqhim Tossam - Four Tet Remix 2) Imidiwan Ma Tenam - Portugal. The Man Remix 3) Imidiwan Ma Tenam - Galactic 4) Tameyawt - Deakin of Animal Collective Remix

"I was excited to have a chance to work on a Tinariwen song because while their instrumentation is not all that different their rhythms and their melodies are entirely different from what I am used to, remixing "Imidiwan Ma Tenam" allowed me to think a differently and, frankly, it was just good fun." - John Gourley, Portugal. The Man

On their latest album Tassili the band return 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.
