October / November 2012
Every year or so world music throws up a new global star in the making and 2013 was the year Tuerag guitar genius Omara “Bombino” Moctar’s and Music-Net was proud to present his UK tour. Born and raised in Niger, Bombino is a member of the nomadic Tuareg Ifoghas tribe.
His stunning new album, Nomad has met with overwhelming critical acclaim and showcases Bombino’s songwriting skills alongside his sweet vocals and scintillating guitar playing. Produced Dan Auerbach, from the Black Key’s who has brought a little gnarly garage crunch to Bombino’s rolling desert blues to create an early contender for ‘album of the year’.
