Tartit Live ★ Tuareg from Timbuktu ★ Salón Sonoro
Saturday 08.06.24 @ Mezrab

A very special group coming over to Amsterdam!

This group from Timbuktu was formed in exile between the Mauritanian and Burkinabe refugee camps in 1995. All its members are from the Timbuktu region, specifically the Goundam cercle. The group has a single aim: to sing about exile, love, peace and the political condition of the Tuareg people. Tartit was created to safeguard traditional Tuareg music, which was slowly disappearing. It is composed by female voices through an organisation called Tartitn’Chetma (Union of Sisters).

Tartit’s concerts are an invitation to travel to the desert. Inviting and almost hypnotic, this music inevitably leads you into the mystical world of the Kel Tamasheq (people who speak Tamasheq, the language of the Tuareg). The magic of the performance is heightened by the beauty of the traditional dress and authentic instruments: the tende (a drum made from mortar and covered with goat or sheep skin), the teher (a drum made from a mortar and covered with goat or sheep skin), the kel and the imzad (a violin made from a calabash covered in goatskin or sheepskin, with a string made from horses’ hair). The songs are a mix of traditional and modern melodies.

Women’s voices, youyou, clapping and dancing, the Magic of Tartit will take your audience on an unforgettable journey.
