Bombino Live At Village Underground: Omara 'Bombino' Moctar
"Born and raised in Niger, in and around the northern city of Agadez, Bombino is a member of the Tuareg Ifoghas tribe, a nomadic people descended from the Berbers of North Africa.
Before 2009, Bombino was little known outside Saharan Africa. But in the last few years, he has begun to find a following abroad. He has sold out venues across Europe and the US, and has garnered the praise of outlets ranging from Pitchfork to NPR's Fresh Air.
Bombino will be celebrating the release of their new album produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
Tuareg guitarist and songwriter Omara 'Bombino' Moctar, was born in 1980 at a nomadic camp near the dusty outpost of Agadez and was raised during an era of armed struggles for Tuareg independence. Bombino's electrifying jams capture the spirit of resistance and rebellion while echoing with guitar riffs reminiscent of fellow Africans Tinariwen and Ali Farka Touré not to mention Jimi Hendrix, and John Lee Hooker.
