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, after becoming in love with his culture, especially with their music .. A chance meeting in Niamey in 2016 is the origin of this project that has been forging little by little but with a firm step.

Currently Nomada Music is a brand focused on promoting and accompanying artists, both from Africa and Europe, with the aim of promoting their artistic and professional development. .

Nomada Music is also specialized in music rights and offers its services as a consultant to guide artists on the management of their rights, understanding contracts, the relation with the different actors involved and much more...




Nomada Music is currently managing Kel Assouf (Belgium) and Dag Tenere (Niger), two bands in different stages of development: one consolidated and the other emerging.

With the firm conviction that the desert blues is much more than an 'à la mode' musical style, Nomada Music also works on the specificity of each group and the promotion of its unique sound horizons in face of 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 summer.



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.
