The Warhol welcomes Tuareg guitarist, Mdou Moctar, and his band who are originally from a small village in the Azawagh desert of Niger. Similar to past Sound Series Toureg bands such as Tinariwen and Imarhan, Mdou's music has been an underground success with an international following, focused on blending Western blues and rock guitar sensibility with traditional West African polyrhythms. Mdou also wrote and starred in the first ever Tuareg language film, Rain the Color Blue with a Little Red In It, a Saharan remake of Prince's Purple Rain, released in 2015. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
