Terakaft (meaning "caravan" in Tamasheq) is a genuine desert rock band, sculpted by the pure searing air and the endless rolling sands of the Sahara. The stark, harsh conditions of the Sahara have permeated their wild riffs, and as a result Terakaft are the perfect embodiment of all that is wild and free in desert blues today. Also on the bill is Sihasin, Jeneda
 and 
Clayson
 Benally's explosive
 duo 
of bass 
and
 drums
 rooted 
in
 Native,
 rock, punk
 and
 world
 music. Their music reflects hope for equality, healthy and respectful communities and social and environmental justice.

Hailing from the Mother Continent, Tuareg blues caravan Terakaft exemplifies the unfamiliar yet somehow universal sound of Malian desert bluesmen. Sanou Ag Ahmed, Kedou Ag Ossad—who was also an original member of storied Saharan outfit Tinariwen—and Sanou’s uncle, Liya Ag Ablil aka Diara, formed Terakaft in 2001. When touring the US, the band is accompanied by percussionist Brahim Fribgane and bassist Richard Emery. There’s definitely a progressive aspect to the group’s work, but falling under the spell of their intoxicating sound doesn’t require a working knowledge of African political struggle. Experience Terafakt and Navajo sibling duo Sihasin at the Dirty Bourbon Dance Hall & Saloon (9800 Montgomery NE) on Sunday, May 4. This 21-plus concert revs up at 7pm, and tickets range from $17 to $22.
