Terakaft

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Saharan desert-blues band Terakaft play some of the most peaceful songs on the planet-with gentle percussion, trance-like African call-and-response vocals, noodling bluesy guitar work and steady pulsing bass grooves. Yet, their music is currently banned in their homeland of Mali, as all non-religious music is currently not permitted. The trio of Tuareg guitarists don't actually sing about anything controversial, instead they use their music as a plea for peace (Something that is apparent simply in the sound of the music, even for people who don't speak their language.) The band features founding members of Tinariwen-who formed in 1979, and play a similar spacious rock & roll-meets-desert-tribal African music. Terakaft, however, are even more stripped down and raw. This is a very rare performance in San Jose for a truly unique global band. (Aaron Carnes)
