Video: Tinariwen Meet TV On The Radio With "Tenere Taqqim Tossam"

Today, over on Pitchfork, we were excited to find the beautiful new video of Malian blues nomads, Tinariwen, who collaborated with two of our faves - Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone from TV on the Radio for "Tenere Taqqim Tossam."   We'll definitely be adding this track to the regular rotation alongside TVOTR's latest release, which we've had on constant replay for weeks - Nine Types Of Light.  The collabo makes complete sense - you can hear Adebimpe's signature vocal stylings complement the rhythmic gritty desert blues Tinariwen achieves on this new release - a departure from the more psychedelic electric-guitar based sounds they are known for, as they recorded with mainly acoustic guitars and un-amplified percussion here.  Perhaps Adebimpe's Nigerian roots will lead to even more African collabos (we hope!).


Be on the look out for Tinariwen's newest release, Tassili, due out August 30th on Anti, which also features Wilco's Nels Cline and the horn section from the Dirty Dozen Brass Band.  Tinariwen's full U.S. and European tour dates are after the jump.

Deadly Clashes Between Protesters and Police Erupt in Ivory Coast Following President Ouattara’s Decision to Run For Third Term

Ivory Coast President Alssane Ouattara's announcement to run for a third term has seen several citizens killed in clashes between protesters and security forces.

Four civilians have reportedly died in demonstrations that have seen President Alassane Ouattara's supporters clashing with security forces. An 18 year-old reportedly died in a violent demonstration in the southeastern town of Bonoua, 50km from the economic hub, Abidjan.

Demonstrations by youth oppose Ouattara's re-election campaign stating that his presidential bid is unconstitutional. Ivory Coast's Constitution prohibits Outtara's run for president, but he contests that this law was only approved in 2016 in the middle of his second presidential term and therefore is not applicable.
