Tinariwen

Friday, Apr 19, 2013 9:00p
The Chapel San Francisco, CA

Startling myths of fierce nomadic desert tribesmen toting guns & guitars,turbaned rock'n'roll troubadours, Stratocaster on one shoulder, Kalashnikov on the other, 17 bullet wounds & rawest desert blues on earth.

Three aimless teenage friends in exile from southern Algeria's desert-Ibrahim Ag Alhabib, Hassan Ag Touhami & Inteyeden fall in love with the guitar. They write songs about their own lives and about those of their friends, the modern Tuareg youth.
