Watch Imarhan Perform Live In The Studio KCRW

Imarhan is a crew of young musicians from Tamanrasset in southern Algeria. The band has a direct family relationship with Tuareg rock trailblazers Tinariwen: Not only is one of Tinariwen's members, Eyadou Ag Leche, a cousin of Imarhan's frontman, but he also has production and co-writing credits on the younger band's new album.

Imarhan integrates the hypnotic riffs and relentless percussion of traditional Tuareg music with modern elements to create something fresh, as you can hear on "Tarha Tadagh."
