The Big Deal: Tinariwen With Lonnie Holley At Canton Hall

by Gila Espinoza 28 Aug 2019 1:30 AM

Tinariwen (tin-AH-ri-WEN) is a guitar band from northern Mali in West Africa. Considered poet-guitarists, their music expresses the aspirations of their nomadic people, the Tuareg. A recent NPR article said, “The members have been hailed as guitar gods, playing rolling melodic lines and loping rhythms that evoke the desert sands of the Sahara — the band’s native home.” The internationally-recognized band is touring the U.S. this summer and fall and is making a stop in Dallas. Why not impress a friend/date with your taste in musical diversity.  Enter to win tickets to see the group perform with Lonnie Holley on September 14, at Canton Hall in Deep Ellum.
