Gearing up for their third album for FatCat, Tal National look back on a fertile period spent further honing their sound and touring the US several times - leaving audiences sweaty and stunned time after time. They've laid down incredible sets at Womad and Roskilde, bringing the same intensity and jubilance to the festival as they would a crammed club.
At their core, Tal National's intent is to make the people dance. Performances at the Niamey nightclub they run are raucous 5-hour non-stop dance parties for 300 people a night. With Tantabara, the band continue their ongoing quest to translate that energy to tape, bottling the party for personal use.
