Rock & Pop

Imarhan/Relaxer/Obnox/Original Soundtrack

When: Fri., May 6, 9 p.m. 2016

Upon first listen, one might not know what to make of the surprisingly funky sound of Tuareg’s latest musical export, but that’s exactly what the band is shooting for. Mixing modern Western pop melodies and instrumentation with pan-African rhythms that draw from the traditional Saharan sounds, the quintet’s music is a fresh blend of music from distinctly different origins. Although most in an American audience will probably have a hard time understanding any of the words to their songs, which are spoken in the band’s native language, there will be plenty of variety in the band’s set to keep those on the Musica’s floor dancing throughout the night. Guitarists in the crowd will have the chance to walk away with a new piece of hardware, too, as the concert’s host, EarthQuaker Devices, will raffle off a new pedal. (DeSmit)
