Field Stage, August 4th, 22:30

 
The internationally acclaimed Tuareg guitarist and singer-songwriter from Agadez, Niger, has just released a new album with which he's pioneering a new style that he affectionately calls ‘Tuareggae’ – a sunny blend of Tuareg blues/rock with reggae one-drop and bounce. Also featuring the first-ever use of Western vocal harmonies in recorded Tuareg music, (due to artist David Longstreth’s influence), his latest songs are given new depth and color. With all of the above, and a band behind him that is tighter and more energetic than ever before, he is currently touring and presenting his best, most well-rounded, and groundbreaking album to date: Azel.
