This is a rare opportunity to hear the brand new Album ahead of it’s release

(available on Outhere Records in May!!)

Celebrating a rich and diverse culture with their unhindered sound; Terakaft tell their powerful story sculpted by the rolling sands of the Sahara 29th April 2015 at the intimate arts space Rich Mix, the perfect setting setting for a story as passionate as this.

Comprised of two original members of Tinariwen, their sound is perhaps a more intense, purposeful slant on the desert-rock sound, creating an atmosphere symbolic of their lives and the journeys made.

Formed in 2001 and hailing from Kidal, Mali, Terakaft are a genuine Tuareg desert rock band sculpted by the desert, weathered, dusty and relentless. Through pulsating guitars rhythms and powerful, mournful vocals, Terakaft – ‘Caravan’ in their mother tongue – tell tales of a nomadic people, of families displaced, of violence, loss, sadness and defiance. And they do so in a way that carries within it the spirit of victory, even while singing of defeat.

A unity in sound formed by the three vocal harmonies, blue in nature, yet effortlessly representative of peace, beauty and happiness accompanies wild riffs and searing eastern-tinged melodies. This is the Terakaft sound. This is not to be missed.

We’re very pleased to welcome back to the stage Future Dub Orchestra who will be supporting Terakaft on the night. After blowing the roof off KOKO as they supported Roni Size in January, their mixed style and creative diversity is always something to behold and we’re excited for them to join us once more. Don’t miss this.

  • Terakaft – performing their new album ‘Alone’ ahead of it’s release
