The Warhol welcomes Imarhan from Tamanrasset, Southern Algeria. Imarhan, meaning ‘the ones I care about,’ deftly blend repeating guitar melodies with pan-African rhythms, which draw on the traditional Tuareg music of Southern Sahara, African ballads and modern pop and rock influences. The band’s debut album, Imarhan, is intent on dismantling the ideas western listeners have about popularized Tuareg music. The band’s lead vocalist and guitarist Iyad Moussa Ben Abderahmane (aka Sadam), also performs with the pioneering Tuareg band Tinariwen (who performed at The Warhol in 2014). Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
