Mdou Moctar @ Thalia Hall

September 6, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Mdou Moctar was the opener for Parquet Courts at the Riv earlier this year and they totally blew me away. Afrique Victime is one of my favorite albums of 2021!

Podigious Tuareg guitarist and songwriter Mdou Moctar boldly reforges contemporary Saharan music and “rock music“ by melding Eddie Van Halen pyrotechnics, full-blast noise and guitar shredding, field recordings, drums rhythms, poetic meditations on love, religion, women’s rights, inequality and Western Africa’s exploitation at the hands of colonial powers to rip a new hole in the sky with the Afrique Victime album.
