BAM R&B: Bombino


Thursday, July 25, 2013, 12:00 PM

BAM R&B Festival at MetroTech

Nigerien guitarist and songwriter Omara “Bombino” Moctar is an international sensation, having turned heads with the inventive Saharan guitar rock of his 2011 release, Agadez. On his latest album, Nomad, muscularly produced by the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, Bombino’s vocals and fuzzy guitar sound dance together in lockstep with tight grooves, imbued with hope and sun.
