Glitterbeat presents Tamikrest

Facebook event Share Tweet

Desert blues for fans of Tinariwen, Bombino, Mdou Moctar, Imarhan …

The delicious desert blues of Tamikrest (established in Algeria) was reflected recently on their latest album ‘Kidal’. The title refers to their hometown in the north of Mali, and it was released via leading global sounds label Glitterbeat (see too: BaBa ZuLa, Bixiga 70, Noura Mint Seymali, AMMAR 808 ...). For the recordings (that took place in Bamako), they were assisted by the likes of David Odlum, who has already received a Grammy for his work with Tinariwen.

‘Tamikrest slaat en zalft door te pendelen van rauwe desert blues tot ingetogen pracht. Met Glitterbeat als kwaliteitslabel meteen een dubbele garantie voor klasse.’

Kurt Overbergh

For fans of Tinariwen, Bombino, Mdou Moctar, Imarhan, Kel Assouf …

In the press ‘Tamikrest equals the utterly natural musical blending of Sahel Africa, the Maghreb, and the West – a reflection of influences as diverse as Pink Floyd, Rachid Taha, and flamenco.’(Glitterbeat Records)
‘Kidal’ is first and foremost a kick-ass, spirited rock 'n' roll album that demands to be heard far beyond any world music specialist interest circles.’ (The Line Of Best Fit)
