Group Inerane embark on their first and best European tour

The Tuareg people are nomads who inhabit a stretch of desert in northwestern Africa. Their society is matrilineal, so social status is transmitted through women, families generally reside close to the wife’s parents, and women own the family’s livestock. Tuareg men wear an indigo veil that conceals most of the face, and the garment has earned them the nickname of “Blue People,” because indigo pigment tends to stain the skin.

Group Inerane has developed a sound that embodies the mystique of Tuareg history and even slightly channels 60s psychedelia, a sound that the group’s label, Sublime Frequencies, says “rivals both the Magic Band’s early 70s marathon workouts and The Velvet Underground’s drone on tracks like ‘Sister Ray’.” The Wire reports that Group Inerane has a handful of European dates scheduled throughout November and December, and their most recent album, Guitars from Agadez Vol. 3 (TMT Review), will be repressed along with a new 7-inch, which will be sold exclusively on tour.
