NEW ALBUM TASSILI OUT AUGUST 30;
U.S. TOUR KICKS OFF JULY 7 IN CHICAGO
Anti- Records will be releasing a new album by the acclaimed band Tinariwen entitled Tassili this August 30. Recorded in a protected region of the South-Eastern Algerian desert, the group returned to the roots of their music, with only acoustic guitars and un-amplified percussion.
During recording, the band was joined by Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone of TV On The Radio. Later on, guitarist Nels Cline (Wilco) and the horns of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band contributed to create an album that reaches deep into the essence of Tinariwen's sound while simultaneously opening itself to the surrounding world.
