Video: Tinariwen + TV On The Radio on The Colbert Report


Stephen Colbert conducts a fairly racist interview (but that's the joke or something) with members of OKA favs Tinariwen and TV on the Radio. The two groups then perform “Tenere Taqqim Tossam” off of Tinariwen's latest album Tassili. Okayafrica caught up with Tinariwen, AKA the nicest guys in the world, the last time they were in New York City. We're always curious how they reconcile their time in the concrete jungle with their lives in the desert - it's gotta take some mad patience.
