Main Stage • Saturday

Tamikrest means ‘crossing’ in the language of the Kel Tamashek, a traditionally nomadic Saharan people that is commonly referred to as the Tuareg. It is an apt name for a band that so successfully merges the values of their timeless culture with the sounds and visions they have encountered on a headlong journey to the concert stages and ipods of the world. Echoes of dub, blues, psychedelia, funk and even art-rock are seamlessly weaved into Tamikrest’s increasingly individual take on the Tuareg musical tradition.
