The Dunes is a North African fusion group, based in the San Francisco Bay Area, whose members hail from North Africa and Northern California. Singing in Arabic, Amazigh, French and English, The Dunes mix original compositions with Moroccan, Algerian and Tunisian favorites and rarities. Songs of love and life, exile and hope, faith and transformation come alive in the Dunes’ slamming live set to get dancers dancing, thinkers thinking, and groovers grooving.
