Tuareg blues band Tinariwen returned to Stuart's Opera House on April 4 for a rousing concert that turned into a dance party, with several audience members making good use of the theater's orchestra pit.

The Grammy Award-winning group is currently touring in support of its latest album, Emmaar, which has received glowing reviews from media outlets such as NPR, Pitchfork and Rolling Stone.

British folk ensemble The Melodic opened the evening with songs from their debut release, Effra Parade.
