This event has finished

Bombino is an internationally acclaimed Tuareg guitarist and singer-songwriter from Niger. 

In the past 2 years, Bombino became a sensation on the international music circuit, playing countless shows across the world. His blend of traditional Berber rhythms with the energy of rock and roll were highly celebrated by the media. His latest rise to the limelight came with the release of "Nomad", an album produced by Dan Auerbach from The Black Keys. 

“A perfect match of sound and soul, the set introduces a new guitar hero. [Four stars]” Rolling Stone

“The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach pairs up with monster Tuareg guitarist Bombino for a dream-team album.” npr

“Nomad is a seductive album that manages to bring a distant Islamic culture unexpectedly close through the universal language of rock 'n' roll.” The New York Times

“A killer document not only for fans of North African guitar music; anyone who has ever appreciated a master player make magic on a Fender.” L.A. Times

“Bombino” is a self-taught guitarist deeply rooted in Saharan nomad identity. From a childhood marked by uprisings, war and exile, Bombino developed a unique approach to guitar playing (an instrument adopted by the Tuareg culture). Through his compositions and inspirational lyrics he gives life to the sentiments and dignity of the nomadic tribes of the Sahara and Sahel. He was recognized as one of the most powerful voices of his people, and discovered by filmmaker Ron Wyman, and in 2006 by Keith Richards and Charlie Watts (The Rollings Stones) who invited Bombino to record with them in California.
