Algerian desert rockers Imarhan stop by Liverpool’s Philharmonic’s Music Room in July and Getintothis’ Amaan Khan offers his insight.
Imarhan‘s self-titled debut album dispels the misconceptions associated with Tuareg music, delighting our ears with calming guitar lines and passionate melodies gently flowing over grooves which connects them to their desert roots, rather than the sounds of heavy dry distortion.
Sounding so successfully fresh, it is only natural that they are generating some notable interest. To further enchant the world with their music, they’ve have embarked on a tour across Europe and stop by the Music Room of Liverpool’s Philharmonic Hall on July 31.
While though the album they are promoting is their debut, the band themeslves have been around for ten years. Their experience and their calming soulful music offers a musical refreshment regardless of the listener’s ability to understand their language.
If you want something unique and suitable for your summer musical cravings, then Imarhan at the Phil could be it.
