By the Lake Festival4/8/2018Strandbad Weißensee, Berlin
With the release of their debut album in 2016, Imarhan iniated a the “New Wave of Tuareg Music”, a tender, soulful, intense vision of a musical movement that was already flooded with talent and exposure. Their 2018 follow-up “Temet”, lives up to it through additions of funk, fuzz, disco, and rock – an eclectic mix, just after our fancy over here at By the Lake. “Temet” in Tamashek means “connections”. It’s an vigorous wake-up call for unity, reminding people that we are all are connected and that only through the acceptance and uptake of this union will we be able to overcome the separation of cultures and societies.
