The weight of the desert fills the young hearts of Tamikrest. Lead singer / guitarist Ousmane Ag Mossa and his band deal with a war-torn childhood.

They are proud practitioners of the Tuareg blues, still you can detect ripples from Western music in the desert sand. 

With soothing electric guitars, hypnotic percussion and female backing vocals and the high-pitched, trilling vocal sounds known as ululation, Tamikrest create their own tracks in the golden, dry landscape.

Label: Glitterhouse/Import

Delicate and crispy desert blues.
