Terakaft on Tour

By Francerocks

Terakaft (meaning “caravan” in Tamasheq) is a genuine desert rock band, sculpted by the pure searing air and the endless rolling sands of the Sahara. The stark, harsh conditions of the desert have permeated their wild riffs, and as a result they are the perfect embodiment of all that is wild and free in desert blues today. Terakaft was formed in 2001 with a line-up that included two former members of Tinariwen, and they have since made the electric guitar their own. They will be touring the US in September, including performances in New York at Joe's Pub and at the Chicago World Music Festival.

Rethinking the Littérature de Gare: Crime Fiction in France and the U.S.

By Arian Murati and Anne-Sophie Lehrmann

Hitchcock defined suspense as “the state of waiting for something to happen.” When dealing with genre fiction, definitions come at a premium, and they are often replaced by a constantly evolving network of subgenres and special topics.
