An Algerian band that comes into contact with Western rock artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Pink Floyd and Mark Knopfler? The magical result is Tamikrest. With Chatma (2013), the band produced one of the very best Tuareg albums ever recorded, according to Written in Music. The numerous nominations in 'Album Of The Year' lists underline that this was no exaggeration. Later, the albums Taksera and Kidal were released, and performances all over the world followed in quick succession. Tamikrest is therefore partly responsible for the renewed popularity of 'desert blues'.

Let op: dit concert vindt plaats in de Kleine Zaal van de Effenaar.

Echo’s van dub, blues, psychedelica, funk en zelfs artrock worden naadloos verweven met hun kijk op de muzikale traditie van Tuareg. Tamikrest betekent “kruispunt” in de taal van de Kel Tamashek, een traditionele nomadische bevolkingsgroep in de Sahara, beter bekend als de Tuaregs. Het is een geschikte naam voor een band die zo succesvol de waardes van hun tijdloze cultuur mixt met de geluiden en visies die ze onderweg, op een van hun reizen tussen hun concerten, hebben ontdekt.

Maar wie de geschiedenis van Tamikrest kent, weet dat het niet enkel feest kan zijn: het repertoire beslaat net zo goed intense, en meeslepende nummers waarin het verdriet doorklinkt om hun geboortestad Kidal dat door oorlog, vervolgingen en politieke instortingen is geteisterd. Zo heeft het meest recente album dat afgelopen maart 2017 uitkwam, dezelfde titel meegekregen en is ‘Kidal’ een eerbetoon aan haar historische thuisbasis. Af en toe beklemmend, bij vlagen heerlijk dromerig, maar altijd wonderschoon.
