Tamikrest in tamasheq language means junction, connection, knot, coalition. The group members come from different horizons (Mali, Niger, Algeria and France). They toured Australia in October as a three piece and played at Meeniyan town hall. If you don’t know Meeniyan is about an hour and a half east of Melbourne. This is an excerpt from that performance.
We’re big fans of their desert blues sound, and reviewed a couple of their previous albums, 2013’s Chatma which you can see here, and 2012’s Toumastin which you can see here.
