TAMIKREST in tamasheq language means junction, connection, knot, coalition. The group members come from different horizons (Mali, Niger, Algeria). Wanting to assume fully their Touareg identity, they found in the rebel music Ishumar the means to express it. Through the message of their songs, TAMIKREST want to make Tamasheq poetry and culture accessible to inhabitants of a world larger than the immensity of the Saharian desert.
