Imarhan will be live in-store at Rough Trade East to perform tracks from new album 'Temet', out now on City Slang.

Formed whilst still still at school under the guidance and counsel of their “bigger brothers” Tinariwen, Imarhan released their self-titled debut album in 2016, their tender, soulful, intense vision of a genre of music that was already flooded with talent and exposure still managed to float to the top and be heralded as a pivotal record of the “New Wave Of Tuareg Music”. The band from Tamarasset, Algeria have just released their second album ‘Temet' on City Slang.

‘Temet' is a huge leap forward in the creative sound and production for the band. Whereas their debut was anchored in the meditative desert blues tradition, Temet blows clear of any such notions, finding bounce and drive by stirring their sound with funk, fuzz, disco and rock.
