a North African-Middle Eastern fusion of world music, rock and desert music
Named "Best African Band" by Rolling Stone, Tinariwen was formed in 1979 by group members from Tessalit, an oasis in the Sahara Desert in northern Mali. The group, whose name translates to "deserts," draws their style of music from rock as well as African and Middle Eastern music mixing acoustic and electric guitars, electric bass, drums, and gnarled picking patterns from West African lutes. The melodies are as straightforward as folk tunes that tug against harmonies in ways that reflect Tinariwen's nomadic lifestyle. Visit their site.

Christopher Caldwell on "What is the West's Problem with Islam?"

Reflections on the Revolution in Europe: Immigration, Islam and the West: your purchase benefits LCC programmingReflections on the Revolution in Europe: Immigration, Islam and the West: your purchase benefits LCC programming Europe has received a wave of immigration from the global south in recent decades, similar in scope to the US-but very different in its results. Many immigrant and second-generation communities have astronomical unemployment rates and a thin connection to European identity. Some have produced terrorists. The problems are particularly severe among newcomers from the Muslim world.

If Europe has an Islam problem, whose fault is it? Is Islamic belief and culture incompatible with Western institutions? Or is there such a thing as "Islamophobia," poisoning immigrants' efforts to integrate on European terms?

Christopher Caldwell, who writes for the Financial Times, The New York Times Magazine and The Weekly Standard, visits Zócalo to talk about themes from his upcoming book, Reflections on the Revolution in Europe: Immigration, Islam and the West.
