This tuesday at Brasserie de la Mule (Schaarbeek), concert of Tamasheq desert rock group TisDass from Niger, presenting their new album Houmaïssa, (listen here).
Tisdass is the band of singer-guitarist Moussa Kildjate Albadé. Based in Niamey and originally from Tchintabaraden, an emblematic town of the kel tamasheq of Niger. Growing up to the sounds of Tinariwen, Bob Marley and Dire Strait that his father listened to, the desire to fight with words and guitars came after a trauma. As a child, he saw his country’s army kill part of his family, even though they sang of the freedom of a people and the hope of better days for an ancient culture. He understands that weapons only cause misfortune and like the pioneers of Tuareg blues, he learns the guitar and writes songs in order to make peace and independence possible for his people.
Listen here to their older album Yamedan on Sahel Sounds and their previous 2019 album Amanar via Spotify.
