About the event
PVD World Music presents @tamikrest and museum legs July 22nd, 2023.
We are thrilled to announce our return to Dexter Park ( The armory) with a series of a captivating blend of traditional and fusion global sounds and dances performed by talented artists representing diverse cultures from around the world.
We are thrilled to announce that Tamikrest will join us to guide us into the world music of all things Tamasheq poetry and culture.
Tamikrest, derived from the tamasheq word for "junction" or "connection," is a band whose diverse members reflect its name. With a fusion of Touareg identity and modern rock influences, their music pays homage to their cultural roots while exploring themes of yearning for freedom. Through their songs, Tamikrest aims to bring Tamasheq poetry and culture to a global audience beyond the vast expanse of the Saharan desert. Originating in Kidal, Mali, the band's journey began with three members who met during a guitar workshop and started playing together with two homemade guitars. Today, Tamikrest boasts an impressive trajectory, having performed on prominent international stages and gained a global following. Drawing inspiration from their travels and the situation in their homeland, the band's songs are born from the experiences encountered along their extensive journey from the Sahara to Japan.
We warmly invite you to join at Dexter Training Ground as we commemorate another extraordinary year of music and musical traditions that capture the rich fabric of our global community.
Mark your calendars for the monthly concerts, beginning July 22, 2023, taking place every month until October 2023.
Event starts at 4:00 PM with live performances from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM.
We are excited Jah Patty join us and provide amazing food and we will have drinks.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our presenting sponsors Providence Department of Arts, Culture and Tourism for their continued generosity. PVD World Music Institute is partially supported by the RISCA Expansion program, Papitto Foundation, Providence Department of Arts, Tourism and Culture and Social Green Enterprise.
We hope to see you there!
