    Mdou Moctar Announces 2022 Tour, Releases Live at the Niger

    Mdou Moctar has announced a lengthy run of 2022 tour dates. The trek kicks off on February 27 in North Carolina and brings the guitarist and his band around the world, making stops in the United States, Canada, England, Germany, France, Sweden, and more. The world tour will wrap up with a set at Off Festival in Poland on August 6. Also slated to perform at select shows on the tour are Parquet Courts. Check out the full itinerary below.

    Moctar has also released a special performance video today titled Live at the Niger River. The 20-minute clip captures the prolific Tuareg guitarist and his bandmates Ahmoudou Madassane, Souleymane Ibrahim, and Mikey Coltun playing four Afrique Victime songs—“Tala Tannam,” “Bissmilahi Atagh,” “Ya Habibti,” and “Chismiten”—next to a campfire in Niamey, Niger.

    According to Coltun, who captured this footage as well as Mdou Moctar’s latest documentary, they used generators to power the remote set. “As we started playing ‘Tala Tannam’ the sun came up and the two-colored Saharan bird, the pied crow, the symbol for Mdou Moctar, flew above us,” he said in a statement. “Midway through the session we were greeted by a pack of goats coming towards us from who knows where. They stopped and listened for a bit. Totally spontaneous, as things usually are for the Mdou Moctar group. This session proved to be one of the most beautiful performances we’ve played together.”
