Tunng recorded a session with Tinariwen for the BBC last year. We recorded three songs – People Folk, Tamatant Tilay and Adoumia. The session will be broadcast by BBC Radio 3’s ‘Late Junction’ on Thurs 19th February 2009 [23:15]
And they’ll be touring in March.
A CONTEMPORARY MUSIC NETWORK TOUR IN ASSOCIATION WITH TWISTED FOLK
Tunng and Tinariwen, a long-distance collaboration between two exceptional bands. Cryptic folk and desert blues blend effortlessly in this fluid set. Fragments of vocals, languages, riffs and melodies weave together, with transporting space and ease. Tinariwen appear as a three-piece.
