“Tamotaït” burns relentlessly and insistently – until it finally boils over: a modern Album with a Vintage Sound that wants nothing less than to turn truth and Revolution into music. With” Tamotaït”, Tamikrest’s fifth studio album, The Band returns with a lively, untamed rock’n’roll Statement. On their most powerful Album since the acclaimed “Chatma” of 2013, the Band not only turns up the volume, but also increases the meditative atmosphere and sharpens once again the brooding view of the political Situation of the Sahara. The members of Tamikrest are Tuareg, their music is a means for them to point out the political Situation of their people. On “Tamotaït” blazes, this music is bright and burning – it is more than just an Album. “Tamotaït” is resistance. But also the dream of a better future, the title means as much as hope for a positive change’. The music for this is created as a collective Experiment, whose central theme comes from Tamasheq music and leads from this starting point through different worlds. On” Tamotaït ” the celebrated Moroccan singer Hindi Zahra and for one piece also a group of traditional Japanese musicians are present. It is the most extensive and adventurous album Tamikrest have made so far, exploring every corner of their sound, sounds powerful and natural and lets defiance resonate through its floating, airy melodies.
