Mdou Moctar Returns with Beacon Performance Next Week

  • Mdou Moctar
Okay, so you may be a little pooped from partying on New Year’s Eve.But put your lethargy aside. Because you need to rally your ass and get it to Quinn’s next Tuesday for the area return of West African guitar god Mdou Moctar.

Raised in a remote village in the Nigerian desert, Moctar takes the Tuareg traditions and nomadic poetry of his linage and conjures a flowing, rock-influenced “desert blues” sound that feels ancient, modern, organic, and effortless. Makers of some of the most incredible music this writer has ever experienced in a live setting, Moctar and group are not to be missed. Seriously.

Think I'm playin'? Bask in the flowing warmth of Moctar and and band on Seattle's KEXP last May:

Mdou Moctar will perform at Quinn's in Beacon, New York, on January 1 at 8pm. Tickets are $15. For more information, call (845) 802-7447.
