One of the best albums of recent years
This man is easily one the world’s greatest guitarists right now and it’s no coincidence he comes from that rich vein of talent that is Tuareg music. Gives me chills. What an amazing talent.
Better in my opinion than nomad. hope he will produce his own music in the future
Bombino is awesome!
By Bombino is the truth
I first heard this music, spending an entire night sleepless with anxiety, at 6am as I could see the sun rising through my bedroom window. I plugged my headphones into my iPad and NPR was showcasing Bombino's album. I listened to the first track and was immediately put at ease. I listened to the rest of the album -- I didn't want to fall asleep. Here's my advice: If you've come this far…found the artist, read the reviews -- buy this: it is truly amazing. As a lifelong musician myself, I am in awe of this guy's talent. See him in concert too if you can -- it's a different vibe, the bottom end is more pronounced, you feel the dance music element to his music. Life-affirming stuff.
Great Desert Jams
This is great stuff. Amazing music for driving or just sitting. The guy's voice is so authentic and spiritual and the guitar licks are sweeeeeeet. If you like this, go get his other album from Sublime Frequencies (Group Bombino - Guitars from Agadez) for more of the same stuff.
