Terakaft (meaning “caravan” in Tamasheq) is a Tuareg desert rock band, sculpted by the pure searing air and the endless rolling sands of the Sahara Desert they create a unique sound with driving African rhythms, authentic vocals and western rock ‘n rol. The music reflects their everyday life, the exile and longing for a independent Tuareg state.
With their roots coming from the grammy-winning Tuareg band Tinariwen (translating to “desert boys”) Tarakaft is a smaller music collective with the Ag Ahmed brothers at it’s core.
The stark, harsh conditions of the have permeated their wild riffs, and as a result Terakaft is the perfect embodiment of all that is wild and free in desert blues today. They have taken the electric guitar and made it their own.
