Tonight was a night of triply world music with Tinariwen & Dengue Fever. Dengue Fever opened. They are from Los Angeles but some of the members are of Cambodian decent. It shows in their music. Most of their songs are sung in Khmer so I had no idea what they were singing. The only song I understood was won about calling and checking email. It was quite appropriate to be seeing them on the night of the Cambodian new year. One of their guitarists was playing a guitar that had two necks one was traditional guitar and the other was of some Asian instrument. Tinariwen got on at exactly 8:00. Tinariwen originally formed in Libya in the 80's and then relocated to Mali. I won't go into their entire backstory. Let's just say they won a Grammy in 2012 which they did. The African style of rock they play comes off as psychedelic. I can clearly hear the influence of a band like Tinariwen in contemporary psych bands such as The Black Angels and BJM. I don't know if it's just that African music just sounds psychedelic or Tinariwen take influence from 60's psych bands. Throughout Tinariwen's performance the raised curtain seemed to be moving in hypnotic sync with their music. Their music is just so triply especially live and I can tell that the guys in the band do NOT take any drugs. This concert had one of the most diverse audiences I have ever seen which was great. I literally saw all races, all colors, all sexes. All creeds etc.
