Imarhan Timbuktu
At clubs and parties in Northern Mali, IMARHAN TIMBUKTU have provided the grooving soundtrack to life there over the past 10 years. With their sister group, TARTIT, they have toured Europe and North America bringing the contemporary music of Timbuktu to world audiences. Grounded in traditional Saharan repertoire, the band developed their unique sound, a contemporary expression influenced by the music of the world. As witnesses to the incredible political forces shattering their world, IMARHAN TIMBUKTU create riveting music. The electric instruments blend with traditional hand drums. The chorus breaths notes of nostalgia, loss, celebration and pride. The many experiments and collaborations with which the group members have been involved over the years move this Tuareg desert blues to fresh coordinates.

PLATINUM VISION is Matt Mottel's band of dreams turned into actuality; combining the punk energies of his youthful NYC days with headphones glued to Nirvana, Sonic Youth, the Velvet Underground, the Stooges and the MC5 to his fermented large ensemble aspirations by checking live gigs by William Parker's Little Huey Music Ensemble, to hearing records by Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Sun Ra and Albert Ayler...

PLATINUM VISION is Mottel's imagination of what it would have been like if Neil Young's Crazy Horse had sat in with the Miles Davis Electric Band in 71 or 72....woah woah woah.... He also likes to say its somewhere between the Modern Lovers, Lee Hazlewood and Mingus... but really its his own brand of unique rock n roll, the classic archetypal NYC sonic architecture.

his band features heavy dudes who have jammed hard with Tune Yards, Beyonce, St. Vincent, John Brown's Body, Dark Meat, The High Highs, Greg Ginn, Necking, and many more...
