Spectular event announced

One of the most forward thinking minds in UK music Tunng are set to tour with African group Tinariwen.

Formed in London in 2003, Tunng have grown to become an ever evolving collective straddling the world of folk and electronica. Existing in a universe of their own, the band are a fantastic live act as their songs evolve organically, twisting and turning into new and evocative shapes.

Tunng first encountered Tinariwen when invited to record a BBC Radio session with the African act. The results were spectacular, an unusual blend of two very different musical cultures.

Formed in Southern Algeria, Tinariwen are world music legends. One time soldier musicians, the group fought in numerous conflicts before accepting peace and a career in music.

18 Bexhill De La Warr Pavilion
19 Leicester De Montford Hall
20 Manchester Academy 3
21 Edinburgh Picturehouse
22 Liverpool Philharmonic
23 Leeds Irish Centre
25 Bath Komedia
26 London Koko
