Ibrahim Ah Alhabib and his Tuareg mu­si­cal no­mads have come a long way since form­ing in refugee camps in Libya and Al­ge­ria in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Over the past decade, their se­duc­tive desert blues has found an au­di­ence be­yond north Africa, thanks to al­bums like The Ra­dio Tis­das Ses­sions and Amas­sak­oul. Their cur­rent al­bum, Em­maar is just as en­tranc­ing. Opera House, Cork, Sat 8pm; West­port Fes­ti­val, Sun 3pm; NCH, Dublin, Tue 8pm ti­nari­wen.com
