Posted in Uncategorized by rain4sahara on February 16, 2011

Bombino, the up and coming Tuareg musician who has graced RAIN events and is the subject of the latest documentary by Ron Wyman, has just released his latest CD “Agadez.”  In Bombino’s electrifying jams, you can hear echoes of fellow Africans Tinariwen and Ali Farka Toure as well as rock and blues icons Jimmy Hendrix, John Lee Hooker and Jimmy Page.  Released by Cumbancha Discovery, “Agadez” is receiving wide accolades.  Bombino will be on tour this year, including an appearance at the Hollywood Bowl in July along side Stevie Wonder and others for a tribute to soul music.

His desert rock and roll guitar had the audience cheering. It is the new sound of Niger. Bombino brings a message of peace to the world and is an example of the spirit of changing guns for guitars.”  – Afropop Worldwide
