This Spring, take a trip to Mali with Arizona Arts Live and KXCI Community Radio as they welcome Tamikrest for an unforgettable evening of cutting-edge desert-blues, rock, and pop.

Tamikrest (a Tamasheq word for “junction, connection, knot, coalition” in reference to its members hailing from different regions) is a 5 member band from the Republic of Mali known for fusing African music with modern rock influences to share the richness of their Tuareg identity. Through the message of their songs, Tamikrest is making Tamasheq poetry and culture accessible to inhabitants of a world larger than the immensity of the Saharan desert.

Starting with just two homemade guitars in 2006, the group has built a global following and grown its repertoire to include over twenty-five compositions. Tamotaït, their most powerful album since 2013’s wildly acclaimed Chatma, turns up the volume to express their thoughts on the state of the Sahara and the world. Don’t miss your chance to experience adventurous music with a twist of familiarity in a feast for the eyes and ears only at Hotel Congress!
