The brightest new band to come out of the Sahara. 'A 21st century rock group who just happen to live in the middle of the desert' - Mojo magazine.
When Tamikrest stepped onto the scene in 2010 the stakes were raised. They took generators deep into the desert in search of the perfect synthesis of their traditional chants, ritual drumming and loping rhythms with the music of their heroes, Pink Floyd and Bob Marley. The hypnotic dub, a psychedelic blues and an almost supernatural kind of desert-garage mixed with an enchanted ancient mystique.
Tamikrest tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Mar 2010.
