Songlines Music Awards 2012 Concert

Duration:
1 hour
First broadcast:
Sunday 09 December 2012

Lucy Duran presents music from around the world recorded at the Songlines Music Awards concert.
On stage at the Barbican in London, winners of this years awards gather to play live, including Touareg desert rock band Tinariwen, winners of the 2012 Best Group category.

Tinariwen is a band whose music is inextricably linked with the plight of the Saharan Touareg people. From their early days fighting in the Touareg rebellion of the early 1990s its members now face threats of violence if they return to their homes in the North of Mali, an area for whose independence they once fought and is now under control of armed Islamist groups. Having made their distinctive desert-rock sound world famous, Tinariwen have inspired a new generation of Touareg musicians, yet their music still embodies a raw power, both of the desert and of the struggle of the Touareg people over the years.
