On the evening of July 30, Tinariwen will be in concert in Livorno.
The Tuareg group will present its latest album, “Emmar“, masterpiece recorded in the California desert Joshua Tree with the collaboration of great artists like Josh Klinghoffer (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Matt Sweeney (Chavez), Fats Kaplin, without forgetting the visionary Saul Williams.
Headliner in some of the most important international festivals including Eurockéennes de Belfort in France, Glastonbury in the UK and Coachella in the US, Tinariwen are worldwide known for their sound that mixes rock, blues and Tuareg traditional music. Their albums “Aman Iman” (2007), “Imidiwan” (2009) and “Tassili” (2012 – Grammy winner) have been praised by major music magazines from around the world and have attracted the attention of musicians like Robert Plant, Elvis Costello, Thom Yorke, Brian Eno and Carlos Santana.
The concert will be opened by Dinamitri Jazz Folklore, one of the most original Italian jazz groups. Active for over 15 years, they are known for a very personal style that ranges – always in balance between research, innovative languages and diverse cultural traditions – from be-bop to New Orleans polyphony, from blues to African matrix sounds.
Dinamitri Jazz Folklore are protagonists of the music scene both live and with high artistic and cultural profile projects, among which many successful performances like “Folklore in Black” (2003) with clarinetist Tony Scott, “Congo Evidence (2006)” with poet Sadiq Bey and “Akendengue Suite” (2009) with Afro-American poet and activist Amiri Baraka.
