Band History

Tamikrest at Weltmusikfestival Horizonte, Koblenz, 2013 Tamikrest Tamikrest

When Tamikrest was founded in 2006, the musicians were all in their early twenties They originate from the region around Tamanrasset, a city in southern of Algeria All of them visited the Les enfants de l'Adrar school in Tinzawaten, a small oasis in the middle of the desert, which was funded by European foundations It was there that the future members of Tamikrest got their basic musical training Their youth was shaped by the civil war that took place between 1990 and 1995 Many family members and friends died while the Tuareg fought for their autonomy When new riots broke out in 2006, Ousmane Ag Mossa and his friend Cheick Ag Tiglia decided not to fight with weapons, but to call attention to the Tuareg’s cause with musical means

In their youth they played the traditional music of the Kel Tamasheq as the Tuareg call themselves and the songs of the Tuareg band Tinariwen, who already mixed African traditional music with western rock music in the eighties Through the internet and mp3 culture, the Tamikrest members got to know bands and musicians like Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Pink Floyd and Mark Knopfler who influenced the shaping of the special Tamikrest sound as well

A chance meeting with the American-Australian band Dirtmusic at the Festival Au Désert in 2008, which took place in Essakane about 50 miles west of Timbuktu, led to a friendship and musical cooperation When Dirtmusic recorded their second album, BKO, in a studio in Bamako the capital of Mali in 2010, Tamikrest were invited to play on that album Chris Eckman member of Dirtmusic and The Walkabouts also produced Adagh, Tamikrest's first album In 2010, both bands toured Europe together and played festivals like Sziget and Orange Blossom Special, the latter organized by their label Glitterhouse Records In October 2010, Chris Eckman produced Tamikrest's second album Toumastin, which was released in April 2011
