Bombino is Back!

Tuareg guitar maestro from Niger Bombino made waves stateside and throughout Europe last year with his well-received solo debut Agadez. The album blended classic Tuareg electric blues with Bombino's own trance-inducing guitar stylings. Our own Banning Eyre in his review found on the record Bombino’s "attack precise", and his "sense of melody irresistible." He went on to state, "Bombino makes music with an open heart, and it’s impossible not to be drawn into its magical inner spaces."

Clearly Bombino is something special. Fortunately for those in North America, Bombino is returning with a lengthy tour through the Spring.
