Never miss another 'Etran Finatawa' show
"Among the grasslands of the Sahel and the shifting sand dunes of the Sahara desert, two legendary nomadic peoples, the Wodaabe and Tuareg, are joined together through the raunchy guitars, camel-gait percussion and haunting voices of Etran Finatawa.
Reflecting on their roots with nostalgia and warmth, these musicians have toured constantly all over the world since the release of their BBC Award-nominated first album. Never before have the clear, piercing vocals of the Wodaabe been heard in a contemporary context, infused with swirling Touareg guitars and hypnotic, driving, calabash rhythms."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
Combining the rich nomadic cultures of the Tuareg and Wodaadbe people of the West African country of Niger - country that has been a cross-roads for the North African Arabs for thousands of years - Etran Finatawa blend traditional instruments with electric guitars and the polyphonic songs of the region. The effect is mesmeric and hypnotic, immediately transporting us to a land of vast desert skies, caravans and camel races.
