Made up of Tuaregs from the Sahara who perform in traditional robes and sing in French and Tamashek, Tinariwen effortlessly slips into entrancing desert blues grooves that transcend language boundaries. The band's latest album, Elwan, is filled with songs that reflect on political turmoil and the harsh realities of desert life, all without losing a sense of hope for the future. Los Angeles-based Dengue Fever, who create psychedelic rock inspired by Cambodian pop music, open the show.
