Monday 4th November at the Arc Stockton – BOMBINO – captivating brand of desert blues.
If you are a fan of world music, or even just great blues guitarplaying, then you are in for a treat with this one! Born in Niger and raised in Algeria and Libya, Omara ‘Bombino’ Moctar is a member of the wandering Tuareg Ifoghas tribe, and has poured his life experiences into his new album Nomad. His captivating brand of desert blues is one of the most refreshing and beguiling sounds out of African music in recent years. Bombino was a child prodigy in the refugee camps where he was raised, and spent his teenage years working as a herder in the deserts around Tripoli while honing his guitar skills by watching videos of Jimi Hendrix and Mark Knopfler!
