TINARIWEN

Named "Best African Band" by Rolling Stone, Tinariwen was formed in 1979 by group members from Tessalit, an oasis in the Sahara Desert in northern Mali. The group, whose name translates to "deserts," draws their style of music from rock as well as African and Middle Eastern music mixing acoustic and electric guitars, electric bass, drums, and gnarled picking patterns from West African lutes. The melodies are as straightforward as folk tunes that tug against harmonies in ways that reflect Tinariwen's nomadic lifestyle.

SPECIAL GUESTS: Sophie Hunger and DUBLAB DJS: Nanny Cantaloupe & Sun Araw with a visual art presentation by Vince McKelvie.

WORLD ARTS DAY

World Arts Day is designed to give the community an opportunity to experience and interact with various art forms from around the world. This year, in collaboration with the World Festival of Sacred Music, we present Burat Wangi and Sekar Jaya in the Mebarung, a Balinese traditional dance competition, and Makoto Taiko, a sensational Japanese drumming ensemble. 

In addition to these dynamic performances the Luckman will present unique and innovative workshops. Iota Center will premiere their workshop Digital Cumbia and Analog Animation allowing attendees to "scratch on film" with a projection of the original works set to the sounds of digital cumbia performed by South American artists Papá Cuy and Muñeca e burro. The Luckman welcomes Raw Bites Happy Food with a workshop all about the love and tradition of chocolate! Chef Julie Titus will educate attendees on the ancient uses of the cacao bean from Mayan and Aztec cultures, along with guiding hands-on demonstrations while preparing spicy Mexican cacao smoothies, salad dressing, and cacao dipped fruit. Other World Arts Day workshops include screen-printing and Indonesian mask-making.
