Tinariwen Come to the Union Chapel As the slow, dark winter days hit the nation and long johns are unearthed Tinariwen will be bringing their sounds of Western Africa to North London in the superlative-inducing surroundings of the Union Chapel.
Building upon the success of 2009’s Imadiwan the desert rebels have taken a stripped-back approach for their latest (and Grammy award winning) album Tassili; developing a brooding Saharan folk-blues delivered in the husky Touareg dialect and managing, in the process, to gain fans as varied as TV on the Radio, Carlos Santana and Thom Yorke.

As well documented in the annals of the Bearded review archive, the Union Chapel is fast becoming the capital’s finest acoustic venue and a chance to catch Tinariwen in such a impressive setting is not to be missed.
