Grammy Award-winning Saharan blues band Tinariwen will be performing in Singapore next year.
The band is deeply rooted in traditional Tuareg music, also influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley. Their music is a hypnotic and danceable combination of desert blues grooves and Tuareg folk and rock. Concertgoers can expect to hear the band's latest, Grammy-nominated album Elwan, performed live.
Tickets are priced at S$48, $68 and $88 and will be available for purchase starting 5 January 2018 via SISTIC.
Tinariwen will be performing at the Esplanade Concert Hall on 24 March 2018.
