Management - Booking - Rights and music consulting

Nomada Music was born from a personal bond with a people in the Sahara desert, the Kel Tamasheq or Tuaregs, and from the love for their culture, especially for their music...  A chance meeting in Niamey in 2016 is the origin of this project that has been forged slowly but surely. 

Today Nomada Music is a brand focused on the promotion and accompaniment of Tuareg artists, particularly from Niger, with the aim of encouraging their artistic and professional development.

Nomada Music is also specialized in music rights and and takes care of the complete management of the musical rights of their artists, and offers consultancy services in this area.




Nomada Music work currently in the 360° management of Dag Tenere (Niger), one of the last Tuareg bands coming from the apparently arid but very rich Sahara desert. 

We have also accompanied the veteran band Kel Assouf (Belgium) for a year and a half, in this difficult time for artists, giving support in booking and management in general..

With the firm conviction that desert blues is much more than a musical style within the vast "World Music", Nomada Music works on the specificity of each group and the promotion of their unique sound horizons in a constantly evolving music industry.

Psychedelic desert rock

Created by guitarist Anana Harouna upon his arrival in Brussels in 2006, Kel Assouf has explored various musical styles and formulas since its inception, from the Tuareg tradition to stoner rock and electronic music. With three albums and two awards from the Octaves de la Musique as the best band in World Music, Kel Assouf is already part of the most notable groups that have emerged from the desert blues style created by the legendary Tinariwen more than thirty years ago.

Authentic blues rock tuareg

Dag Tenere ("children's desert") is a band of Tuareg artists from Niger, Mali and Burkina Faso. Created in 2016 in Niamey (Niger), the group mixes traditional Tuareg sounds (through multiple percussion instruments) with a modern rock and blues, creating an atmosphere that takes us to the peaceful life of the desert. Dag Tenere is a promising group that will release an EP album in 2021 and prepares their first European tour for next year.



Rights management

Ghaliou Khamidoune aka Ghalitan is the founder of the acclaimed desert band Etran Finatawa, created in 2004 after a meeting between Wodaabe and Tuareg artists at the Desert Festival near Timbuktu in Mali. After two successful albums (2006 Introducing Etran Finatawa and 2008 Desert Crossroads) Ghalitan leaves the leadership of the group and create a new one, Kel Guefan, with his friend the great artist Aroudeini Ismaguil.

Nomada Music is in charge of the rights management of Ghaliou Khamidoune (SACEM, ADAMI, labels).




Nomada Music collaborates with various artists from West Africa, especially from Burkina Faso and Niger, in the promotion and appreciation of their music within and outside their borders.

Nomada Music offers its services of guidance and consultation to other artists with the simple objective of exchanging ideas that can lead to collaborative projects.
