About the event
In conjunction with their tour announcement Imarhan have released the entrancing takeaway video for “Mas-abok”, from independent Parisian filmmaker Vincent Moon’s upcoming documentary on the band entitled Children of Tam. Moon followed the band for two weeks, documenting hours of music, pictures and conversations in their hometown of Tamanrasset and at neighboring mountain ranges, specifically Assekrem (Tamashek for “World’s End”), a high plateau in the Hoggar Mountains of Southern Algeria. The result is an hour-long documentary film, which serves as a portrait of the band and their hometown Tamanrasset, for which they are becoming ambassadors.
