For several decades now, West Africa has produced some of the world’s most interesting guitar bands and Niger’s Tal National is no exception. Wildly popular at home, the band keeps the energy high with exuberant singing, skillfully interwoven guitars and loping percussion. The group’s U.S. tour provides a vacation from bandleader Almeida’s day job as a judge in Niger, so don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear these ambassadors of African rock.

Check out a Tal National video HERE.

Members of Tal National will offer a workshop at 5:30 p.m., prior to the concert. Both experienced musicians and music enthusiasts are welcomed.
