Tuareg rebel rockers Tinariwen will be kicking things off at Bonaroo on June 13th. They will also be making stops in Minneapolis, Chicago, Hollywood, San Francisco, Portland (Oregon), Denver, Boulder, Brooklyn and New York City. Their latest recording is Imidiwan: Companions (World Village).

Formed in the southern Sahara, Tinariwen transform the hypnotic music of their homeland into a gritty new breed of electric blues and made die-hard fans of music heavies from Robert Plant to Bono.
