TINARIWEN

 

The iconic Malian desert blues group Tinariwen returns to the Luckman! 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.

SEU JORGE

Raw and soulful, acclaimed Brazilian singer, songwriter, and musician Seu Jorge’s works draw from his childhood experience navigating a favela outside of Rio de Janeiro. His melodies are stripped and untainted fusing classic American and European soul music with psychedelic samba. Best known for his contributions to the soundtrack for the film "A Life Aquatic" and for his portrayal in the celebrated film "City of God" - which drew worldwide attention to the modern reality of poverty and life in the slums - Seu Jorge is an icon in the making.
