Wandering blues rock majesty

Hailed for his guitar-playing skills which have earned him praise by the best, including Keith Richards, Bombino is a child of exile turned into a Jimi Hendrix of the desert. His life as a Tuareg in a harsh environment has taught him about determination in the face of adversity. A charismatic voice of the Sahara and the Sahel, Bombino conveys his nomadic heritage with a peaceful message and traditional Berber rhythms enhanced with rock energy and a bluesy twist. With a guitar bend, he summons images of vast expanses of sand and of the timeless silence of infinite spaces. Superb!
