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.
Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
