Tamikrest, Kaserne Basel, 14 December 2022

At the Tamikrest concert at the Kaserne Basel tonight, the songs often started with rubato passages with ringing melodies by Ousmane Ag Mossa on guitar. As soon as the music hovered enough, Cheick Ag Tiglia on bass, Nicolas Grupp on drums, and Paul Salvagnac on guitar established a groove that drove the dancers in the crowd. Ousmane's vocals came in to shifts in the rhythm, then Cheick harmonized before the driving instrumental groove returned. While often the instruments were all texture, sometimes one guitarist took a more pronounced, even psychedelic lead, and even when the drummer and the bassist took solos, they kept the grooves going, and the crowd kept dancing.
