Tartit – Traditional Tuareg Music

The Sibelius Museum, Turku

  • 19.6.2024 (19.00-20.15)

The Tartit group performs their latest album, Amankor / The Exile, as well as more traditional songs from their rich repertoire.


The Tartit group is one of the leaders of the Tuareg music scene and one of the only groups made up mainly of women. For this tour, there will be five of them, accompanied by two guitarists. They will be presenting their latest album, Amankor / The Exile, as well as more traditional songs from their rich repertoire.

This group from Timbuktu was formed in exile between the Mauritanian and Burkinabe refugee camps in 1995. All its members are from the Timbuktu region, specifically the cercle of Goundam. The group has a single aim: to sing about exile, love, peace and the political condition of the Tuareg people. Tartit was created to safeguard traditional Tuareg music, which was slowly disappearing.

Tartits concerts are an invitation to travel to the desert. Inviting and almost hypnotic, the music inevitably leads you into the mystical world of the Kel Tamasheq (a people who speak Tamasheq, the language of the Tuareg). The magic of the performance is enhanced by the beauty of the traditional dresses and authentic instruments. The songs are made up of traditional and modern melodies.

Womens voices, ululation, clapping and dancing, the Magic of Tartit will take your audience on an unforgettable journey.

Tickets 25/15, doors 18.30. NB. Concert tickets cannot be bought with the Museum Card.
