“Wel­come to the desert.” With that greet­ing Ti­nari­wen opened their set in the Olympia on Sun­day. It’s a long way from the Sa­hara to Dublin but the Tuareg no­mads have cap­tured the imag­i­na­tion of mu­sic fans this year. A sup­port slot to The Rolling Stones in Slane, an ap­pear­ance on Later with Jools Hol­land and the won­der­ful Aman Iman album have helped raise their profile con­sid­er­ably. The six mu­si­cians, dressed in tra­di­tional garb and armed with elec­tric gui­tars, wowed the en­thu­si­as­tic au­di­ence with their hyp­notic ar­range­ments and mix of French and Ta­mashek singing. Words: Brian Keane. Pho­to­graph: Aidan Craw­ley
