Nov 15: Tinariwen
Tuareg musical collective Tinariwen, who won a Grammy for their 2011 album Tassili

come to Shanghai for the first time as part of a tour from Split
Works. Check out our interview with Tinariwen here.

Nov 17: Vurro
This one-man band from Spain plays a chaotic mix of bluesy folk and hard
rock. He wears a cow skull on his head during performances, and has an
elaborate mythical origin story involving a man and cow fusing into one
