Established in 2004, The Warhol’s Sound Series program features a broad range of artists and bands from around the world that blur genres of contemporary independent music. These live music performances challenge conventional perceptions of art and provide audiences with diverse performance experiences.
Sound Series: Imarhan
Sunday, May 6 at 8:00 pm at The Warhol Theater
The Warhol welcomes Imarhan from Tamanrasset, Southern Algeria. Imarhan, meaning ‘the ones I care about,’ deftly blend repeating guitar melodies with pan-African rhythms, which draw on the traditional Tuareg music of Southern Sahara, African ballads, and modern pop and rock influences. The band’s debut album, Imarhan, is intent on dismantling the ideas western listeners have about popularized Tuareg music. The band’s lead vocalist and guitarist, Iyad Moussa Ben Abderahmane (aka Sadam), also performs with the pioneering Tuareg band Tinariwen.
