Eat Your Own Ears presents Tamikrest

Tamikrest formed in 2006 and are from Kidal, a remote desert town in the northwest of the Sahara, some 2,000 kilometres north of the capital Bamako. The band members are all Tuareg, a group of people that are spread all over North and some of West Africa, i.e. Niger, Mali, Algeria, Burkina Faso and Libya. Between 1990 and 1995 a fight evolved into a bloody civil war. After the war many of the rebel fighters traded their Kalashnikovs and hand grenades for guitars and microphones. When new riots broke out in 2006, Ousmane Ag Mossa and his friend Cheick Ag Tiglia decided not to fight with weapons, but to call attention to the Tuareg’s cause with musical means.
